  • It would be better if I could get a better pay with some relaxing parts

What I like about the company

It has relatively flexible hours and if the administration feels like it or has something to share they will give me some treats.

The pay is not high enough for the amount of special work I am doing.

Company Culture

It is a great company to work at. I've only worked there for several months, but felt very welcome by everyone in my department.

Support from management

I receive support from my supervisor in order to keep up with the requirements of my position.

Teamwork

There are a lot of opportunities to work and interact with co-workers, but courtesy and honesty are pretty much expected.

Freedom to work independently

While I have a supervisor, they are not much in my business. They trust my judgement and respect my decisions and choices.

Internal Communication

Expectations are communicated clearly.

Gender Equality

Women are treated fairly. There are plenty of opportunities for advancement and participation.

Attitude towards older colleagues

It treats all employees, young or old equally.

Career Development

There are plenty of other carrier opportunities for me in my company and employees are encouraged to explore these opportunities.

Overall compensation for your work

It could be better, but it's not that bad.

Office / Work Environment

Suggestions for improvement

  • I don't see what can be improved. I'm sure there are different aspects that could be improved, but I don't think it's in my competency to point them out.

What I like about the company

It's a great place to work at. There are lots of opportunities for advancement and lots of opportunities for research, collaborations not only within the university, but with outside companies and of course lots of opportunities to publish your research.Also there are a lot of support services not only for the employees, but for their families.

Nothing much. I don't really see what the can do better.
