    I have been working at University of Kentucky full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Job Security. Once hired, you can work at UK for the rest of your life if you want. Even if you're lazy. (As long as you don't screw up severely)

    Cons

    Things move at a snail pace all over the organization. Salary inequality is severe. Your supervisors make 3-4x your salary without producing 3-4x your knowledge or work, simply because they have friends in the right places and/or have been at the organization a long time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When your subordinates tell you they feel they are underpaid, don't tell them "there's just no money for raises". Especially since it is a public University and everybody's salary is public information. We can see that you get massive raises every year even though there's "no money". (This isn't targeted to one person, this is generic. It happens all over the campus in the management side of things)
