    Pros

    - Can take up to 15 credits worth of classes for free every year
    - Good health coverage and dental plan
    - Beautiful location

    Cons

    - Virtually no opportunity for career advancement
    - Human resources department is disorganized and rude. Employees constantly must fight with HR to correct mistakes made to benefits, paychecks, taxes withheld, etc.
    - Salary is very low for the level of education, experience and expertise required for most positions
    - Overall disgruntled atmosphere among faculty and staff
    - Very little parking, and can be very expensive to get an employee parking pass, depending on where you are located on campus. Most employees have a 15-20 minute walk from their car to their job location, which can be unpleasant during the winter months.
    - Very heavy on the personal and inter-departmental politics

    experience
    fresh
    green
    environmental
    research oriented
    i had the opportunity to work with numerous individuals from various backgrounds

    Cons

    the salary range was less than ideal as there were limited other opportunities within the area.
    Management was not always in tune with the staff's needs

    Advice to Management

    a more competitive compensation package would yield more desirable employees and more innovative research goals and opportunities for the university
