    I have been working at The University of Kansas full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Lawrence is a great town. It's not the Kansas you saw on the Wizard of Oz. Benefits are comprehensive, but not amazing.

    Cons

    Politics, but that's academia. Parking is awful. You have to pay for it. If you want to move up you have to jump departments. But this is common so there is no hostility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for a way to engage employees of all levels...not just faculty.
