Pros

It is one of the few research institutions in Buffalo, the facilities are new, the researchers are genuinely interested in helping each other out (not the PIs, but the lab personnel)

Cons

The politics - it has been described as "indentured servitude". Management seems not able to rectify situations between PIs and their lab employees, and instead shuffles everyone around until there is a good fit.

Advice to Management

The research staff - the ones actually doing the work, not the PIs need to be treated with more respect and get more support from management in cases where there is a dispute between PIs and their lab personnel.
