    I have been working at University of Chicago full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    World-class faculty, very informative seminars, beautiful campus with many historical buildings, three weeks vacation/year instead of two for staff, multiple insurance options, easy public transportation to the campus during weekday rush periods

    Cons

    surrounded by bad areas, poor median pay for science technologists compared to other top-rated universities, not very many places off of campus to eat, public transportation to the university on the weekends is difficult

    Advice to Management

    The best advice I can give is to really get into all of the labs while making rounds of the hospital and university; meet the staff and learn what they do. The work that everyone does is important, but the labs are one of the most important and forgotten about facilities.

    Advice to Management

    Hire outside the box. Think more about the contemporary world in which we live. Stop relying on old tricks to get the job done.
