    I worked at LUMS full-time

    Pros

    A great deal of autonomy is provided by senior management.
    Being an academic institute allows extensive opportunities to research and collaborate with high quality faculty.

    Cons

    Academic institutions are geared towards focusing mostly on the students and faculty. Staff generally play an administrative role, thus systems for managing staff and their work are not designed accordingly.

    Advice to Management

    Engage consultants or other professionals (perhaps current staff members) to actively engage in improving systems for managing staff retention, career path, training and development etc
