    Pros

    - This review is a little tricky to write. A lot of your experience depends on what department you're in and who your managers are. I've been pleased overall with my department and managers. However, if you do find yourself unhappy, it's not difficult to transfer to a different department. - Work/life balance is excellent! The University actually wants and encourages you to have a life outside of work. - Really amazing benefits. Even part-time workers get them. I have my entire family on my health plan. Their retirement plan is REALLY good. Not to mention, tuition exemption - great values and mission - Unions - Lots of diversity - Seattle campus is gorgeous

    Cons

    - Too many greedy, sexist men in charge that could stand to retire. - The pay isn't great. They try to balance this out with the really great benefits you get. While that does help, it's still difficult to get by with the high cost of living in Seattle. If you're single, you'd probably have to get a second job

    Advice to Management

    If I have any, I'll bring it up with my union rep.
