Pros

The benefits are good and the university is large and interesting. I like the area and enjoy having the restaurants and cafeteria options for lunch.

Cons

There is too much bureaucracy and red tape. Departments are isolationist and the pay is only so-so. Parking is terrible. It is not a very attractive university and the traffic is frustrating. Many of the buildings are old and need updated.

Advice to Management

Pay more attention to lower grade staff, raise the pay, allow more communication, update the buildings, and promote advancement and growth.

    Pros

    Great flexibility and autonomy. If you're a faculty member, it's pretty good. If you're a professional, non-faculty employee, it can also be good. Lots of vacation time. I don't know about regular staff.

    Cons

    Salary is below market. Recognition of doing a good job is non existent. Leadership from department to department is highly variable. Some department/unit heads have no management training or experience. This creates undesirable results

    Advice to Management

    Recognize star performers better, find more incentives for employees. Require management training before promoting to dept./unit head.
