Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Michigan State University full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Collegial atmosphere. There was real freedom to go in directions that you find interesting, but support could waver.

Cons

Communication about requirements was dismal and the attitude from staff could be frustrating. Many things are said to be important, for instance career placement, but little is done toward improvements.

    I have been working at Michigan State University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are good professors and it is a nice place to work. you can do good research with adequate facilities in an easy access. Although long hours are/were required, and the pay and benefits aren't so good, MSU is as fine a place for grad students and young researchers.

    Cons

    The salary is not much and there are not much for as a city and you would get bored soon, specially if you are not used to cold weather it gets really tough.
