Suggestions for improvement

  • I'd quietly implement a movement to encourage long-tenured but no-longer-productive faculty to take retirement and open up space for the younger folks more likely to accomplish something.

What I like about the company

It wasn't easy, but I survived. The world is now my oyster.

What I dislike about the company

Lip service is paid to diversity, but the almighty funding dollar rules all.

Suggestions for improvement

  • you would have to change the culture from the top down. No one is willing to change. I think this place is a dead zone as far as the culture goes.

What I like about the company

They provided you with top of the line laptops.

What I dislike about the company

the complete mismanagement of interpersonal relations and promoting through nepotism

Suggestions for improvement

  • see previous statement re accountability. if you're going to do a review of employees, they should be allowed to review their bosses and there should be consequences for being a terrible boss as well

What I like about the company

met some good people. had access to a lot of amazing equipment

What I dislike about the company

no accountability for managers/ PIs. If they're awful, irresponsible, unresponsive, abusive, there is no avenue or recourse. Administration protects them. HR protects them. Even the ombudsperson protects them and tells you to quit because it's just the culture
