    Pros

    Freedom to do research, and to do it anywhere on the planet. Professors have
    at least 4 months a year of unstructured and unsupervised time. It is possible to
    develop international collaborations and to get money for equipment and travel,
    while working on your very own projects. The only true evaluations come from
    other researchers in your field. This is the kind of job for those who want to be their
    own boss, but also like a secure paycheck.

    Cons

    Incompetents can thrive, and they do. It is even possible to publish scientific
    papers in scientific conferences and journals that exist only for that purpose.
    Try searching the terms 'bogus conferences' on Google, for example.

    Advice to Management

    Try to have more international feedback on the performance of your professors.
