    I worked at University of Konstanz full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - staatliche Einrichtung
    - Gehälter für wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiter sind in Ordnung
    - weitere Punkte sind vergleichbar zu jeder anderen Postdoc-Stelle an allen deutschen Universitäten

    Cons

    - Zeit-Arbeits-Gesetz sorgt für Unsicherheiten jenseits der 6 Jahre Beschäftigung und versperrt damit weitere Karrieren als auch Wissenstransfer
    - relativ ungeregelte Arbeitszeiten
    - Arbetiszeit- Gleitzeitmodelle abhängig vom jeweiligen Lehrstuhlinhaber
    -

    Advice to Management

    Auch hier erübrigt sich das Bewertungssystem, da dies auf Lehrstuhlebene stattfindet und im generellen keine Managemententscheidungen auf Landes/Bundesebene verändert/getroffen werden. Das grundlegende Problem ist Abschaffung der Dauerstellen in universitären Betrieben, was ein generelles Klima der Unsicherheit im Mittelbau erzeugt.
