Former Employee – worked at University of Alaska
Pros – Good place for student workers. They do bulk of the work for Biology people. Its nice environment to work for.
Cons – Nothing that bad. I wish they had more funding to support more projects and more students. The funding runs out anytime.
Advice to Senior Management – I think management skills are good. Although it would be nice to see it get more funding to keep continuing the cool projects

Current Employee – been working at University of Alaska
Pros – Working in a University environment with students. Fairly good benefits except if you are a recent hire. In which case your only retirement option is a 401K. The defined benefit was recently eliminated by the Legislature. The University closes between Christmas and New Years so that is a plus for time off with family, travel, etc...
Cons – A large bureaucracy. It is a very political place to work. In some fields there is not much room to grow as this is a small university. Dead wood has accumulated in several departments resulting in a slow down of project implementation.
Everything is over studied to the point of stagnation.
Advice to Senior Management – Allow honest input from staff with out threat (implied or real) of retribution. More professional training. Staff needs to be updated for codes, regulations, etc...
