    Pros

    The benefits are great and it's a very flexible place to work-- great work/life balance. You can almost always get time off if you need to.

    Cons

    The infrastructure of the university is terrible, though-- no one ever knows what's going on and it takes a million years to get anything done if you have to rely on people outside of your own office.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together and get rid of all the bureaucracy. There is no reason I should have to get 5 peoples' approval to pay a research subject.
