    Pros

    The pay is decent relative to Salt Lake City averages, and the benefits are generally good. Health is good, dental is OK, psychological is acceptable, and vision coverage is poor. The staff work culture is very sedate, great place to work if you want to take it easy.

    Cons

    Career advancement is difficult without moving between departments. Salary increases are dependent on the Utah State Legislature (translation: don't expect more than 1-2%). The application/interview/hiring process is extensive for almost any position, it's best to apply if you already have a job elsewhere and can spare the time.

    Advice to Management

    The administration does not inspire a great degree of confidence among the staff or faculty, as they appear preoccupied with initiatives and programs that relate only to a very small proportion of "favored" researchers or departments.

  8. Great people, healthy balance of autonomy and direction

    The people are great, willing to mentor, new ideas are welcomed, and the school is very diverse, active, and engaging.

    Sometimes the lack of centralization makes it hard to maintain efficiency and clear communication across departments.
