Pros

work-life balance, perks. At non-exempt, hours are capped at 35 hours/week. Pay is good - higher than other universities. Lots of training opportunities.

Cons

Depends on management - if you have a bad manager, you might be SOL. Depending on the department, opportunities for advancement might be hard to come by, resulting in many people who shift around to different departments.

Advice to Management

more mentorship for junior employees.
