    I have been working at TU Munich full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, rather international atmosphere, good holiday entitlement, I think that in my case the salary is about as high as it would be at a private company.

    Cons

    It is really hard to get a permanent position even if your boss is happy with your work. Administrative paperwork is available only in German, which is a shame given that it is so international.

    Pros

    Exposure to faculty and students. Increased awareness of university inner workings. Opportunities to seek research in fields of your interest

    Little communication between different departments. In some cases departments share fields of interest but students are not easily able to work with both departments.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more time in marketing available research opportunities to the student body, and ensure student advisers are more up to date with current projects and opportunities.
