    I worked at University of Cincinnati as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with someone who knows what they are doing leads to valuable research.

    Cons

    It's not always that the students and professors are an ideal match, I did a lot of great work, but some of my peers ended up doing not so much.

    Advice to Management

    Structure yourselves and your goals better. Don't get lost in procrastination.

    Great people, gorgeous campus. It's been a fun place to work and I've learned a lot, both in doing my "day job" and as an adjunct faculty.

    Too many silos, very hard to break that dynamic. Currently a lot of turnover in leadership and a large sense of uncertainty and change fatigue.
