    Pros

    Great college atmosphere and benefits. The IT department consisted of great employees which supported each other and were very friendly.

    Cons

    I worked in the IT department. If you are an outsider you get treated with a little animosity especially when promotions come up.

    Advice to Management

    Management must focus more on rewarding good work. Mostly your work is on cruise control and nothing is said to press on the gas.

  7. Great place to work. Overall very good co-workers.

    Pros

    Really good benefit including health insurance and 401K.
    Perfect experimental supporting system, including various instruments, and perfect management system.
    Good work life balance

    Cons

    Crowded working place. Too many people working in the same room with a lot of instruments. More than 4 lab share just 1 lab.
    The salary is low, and increase slowly.

    Advice to Management

    The working environment need to be improved first. If we can have twice working space as now I believe every people will be very happy, and also easy to manage our experiments.
