I have a grant funded position.
What I like
The ability to participate in the Teacher's Retirement (TRS) is a huge benefit. This will provide future security.
What I dislike
It is so large that sometimes things are very cumbersome and it is hard to get things accomplished due to so many layers.
Suggestions for improvement
Streamline processes for accomplishing work, such as IRB, contracting, etc. so that there are not so many hoops to jump through.
