wording on time and speed

Hi designers,

We have a software that allow user to change their preference on how
fast they want a certain things to show up. The current UI is a
slider with measurement units as milliseconds. e.g. , 500 msec. It's
too technically precise to be understood. I'm thinking to change it
to some simple texts, such as 0.5 second, immediate, or instant.

I wonder if there is some guideline or recommendation of the words
that are better understandable for users?

Career paths & organizational structures

After reading this posting a few thoughts came to mind for those positions
below managment level

1) Is the title Human Factors Design Engineer appropriate or should it be
Interaction Designer?

2) At the moment "Each member of our group handles activities ranging from
research, product definition, interaction design, user interface design,
information architecture, ergonomics, and usability testing, through ongoing
usability benchmarking, requirements review and software development
support." - my question is - is everyone doing all these things well?
