    I worked at University of Arizona full-time (more than 5 years)


    Collaborative environment, even across departments, where most people are more concerned with doing the work than personal prestige or ego. Most people are focused on the university mission. Good benefits, too.


    The salaries are generally pretty low, when compared to comparable titles elsewhere. Experience isn't valued as highly as degrees. Budget issues sometimes limited professional development opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep and incentivize an open line of communication and understanding between the staff and faculty tiers of your employees.
