Support from Management
My supervisor was a micro-manager. She wanted everything done the way she would do it, not necessarily the best way it could be done. When you would do it her way she would criticize and nitpick your work. She was rarely complimentary. This employer worked with research grants and was subject to both university and National Institute of Health rules and regulations. When the employer didn't like you they used these rules to get rid of you but if they did like you, you were supported no matter what you did, right or wrong.
Level of Autonomy
Workload: conditional on the job position, specific grant, time of year and where you were in the grant cycle.
You were allowed to structure your own area of responsibility as long as your work got done in a timely manner. Work load would fluctuate but we had a great team and would help each other out when needed.
