    I have been working at University of Minnesota full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility in research. Semi-autonomy in current position. Flexibility in schedule

    Cons

    Pay is much lower than industry. It sometimes feels as though the most talented individuals move on and those who can't remain.

    Advice to Management

    Honest direct communication with employees is better, even if more painful, than going through a third individual

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at University of Minnesota full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Freedom, lack of structure, ability to pursue projects and work that you find interesting. Great connectivity to investors, doctors, and key opinion leaders - a great place to spend a year, grow, and network.

    Cons

    Salary, no direct conduit into funding and cash - potential to cloud the innovation process with external collaborations that are difficult to navigate away from

    Advice to Management

    Need to be better and delivering on the goals that you set and activities that you offer the fellows - seems kind of weak.
