The real problem with her is identifying in which decks she shines. At first glance you would love to put her in a rush deck, but that's not where she really helps. The fourth click let's you reliably fast advance your 2/3 agendas however to be of use she should survive for at least 3 rounds. Therefore you have to protect her with many/strong ice which you don't run since you want to fast advance.

The nice thing about her, more than any other executive, she demands an immediate answer. Trash her now or the corp will be miles ahead. Like SanSan City Grid you want to trash her right after you noticed her however she is also useful if you have established an R&D lock.

Therefore Director Haas sees best fit in glacier type HB where she uses the "scoring server" and you can fast advance your agendas. The other aspect about the executives in general is that she taxes the runner quite a bit. Like NAPD Contract she is a 2 point agenda with "5 to steal" except in archives. Instead of providing you agenda points she grants you a powerful ability which would be worth 6 advancements (see Mandatory Upgrades)

I think she is the strongest of all executives so far and is nicely balanced. Like all executives she suffers from Imp of recurring credits to trash, but on the plus side this "agenda" can not be scored with Film Critic!

(The Universe of Tomorrow era)

Lets face it, potentially giving a runner two points is hardly an appealing risk to take when Biotic Labor is an in-faction alternative. But lately, the executives have been given some help to mitigate the downside.

Consider: Shi.Kyū can mitigate the agenda points scored.

NAPD Contract has warmed up Corps to the idea of making a runner pay for agenda points, and 5 is one more.

If playing Jinteki, Philotic Entanglement gets a little better if she is in the runner’s score area

Executive Boot Campcan get her out when you’re ready for her

Can somebody say Caprice Nisei?

And with Order and Chaos out, the ultimate help in hurting the runner: Self-destruct. It gives thr runner a nice slap in the face!

These cards are all making it so she is playable. An extra click is so powerful she is worth experimenting with.

Here's my attempt:

Does she grant the extra click on the turn she is installed? —
Not installed, but rezzed, yes. —
