    Pros

    Work for one of the best universities in the state. Jobs open at the University every day, so there are plenty of opportunities to move up within the school.

    Cons

    Pretty large bureaucracy. Traffic getting to the school each day is a total nightmare. Working with students can be hard; this is their life, so they are often understandably irate when something goes wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Not much, to be honest. It is hard to rate such a large university; every job and every department is going to have different problems. Though I sometimes feel that individual departments should have greater freedom.

    More teaching training for teaching assistants

    Pros

    Your experience will depend entirely on who you alend up working under. It is like different companies within the same structure

    Cons

    Once again your experience will depend entirely on who you choose to work with. Be sure to research you rboss even more than the institution.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to remove people who either underperforming or are not good at managing those under them. Require PIs to take management courses.
