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

    Pros

    Working at ASU was fine. I do not have major complaints except for the benefits. Living in Tempe was also fine. Moving to Scottsdale or Phoenix might improve quality of life as Tempe is a student "town". ASU is becoming more of a research university and so there is more money coming in.

    Cons

    No benefits as an RA
    Time-off was very flexible but probably depends on the supervisor

    Pros

    Constantly exposed to new and exciting developments. Innovative ideas about changing the face of higher education in the world, and this translates into how everything at the university is done.

    Cons

    ASU is a big place, with many moving parts. It is deeply connected and committed to its students, and the community as a whole so if you prefer working in a very small company with not much going on it may not be a good fit. Though, there are a lot of roles to play to make everything work, and there are small individual teams that work well, so it depends on the specific job w/ in the university you are looking for.
