    I worked at Washington University in St. Louis full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    You have access to the best resources and smart people to learn from.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive. They often hire the person who can be paid lower even though you are qualified for the job and would be the better fit. Grant funding is decreasing, research jobs are paying less or eliminated. Non-qualified people conducting sloppy research because it's cheaper to combine jobs then to pay the right person to do the job correctly. More likely to make lateral move than upward. Strange attitude about increasing someone's pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's a lot of empty space in the buildings already built. Pay your employees a decent wage and cut back on the unnecessary construction.
