Add User to Group in AD

I want to add a user to multiple security groups based on Title & Department.

The logic would be
1. User Department
2. User Title

I have already the Department in the user attribute in AD, I want the user to have a prompt to mention user's sam account & then the script query AD to check for Department.
Based on Department & Title the user should be added to Security Groups.

I tried this so far, but it fails to pass Department in variable:
Import-Module ActiveDirectory
$user = Read-Host -Prompt "Enter Kürzel"
$Department = Get-ADUser -identity $user  -Properties * | select Department
$Title = Get-ADUser -Identity $user -Properties * | select Title

if ($Department -eq 'Team Z' -eq "Director") { "w","w1" | Add-ADGroupMember -Members $user}
elseif ($Department -eq "Team Z" -and $Title -eq "Manager") { "w3","w4" | Add-ADGroupMember -Members $user }


IsPublic IsSerial Name                                     BaseType
-------- -------- ----                                     --------
True     False    PSCustomObject                           System.Object

Same goes for $Title

Thanks in advance!
