I have been working at Princeton University full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Their benefits are excellent, training opportunities abound, and being in such a dynamic learning environment can't help but change you.

Cons

As with all higher ed institutions decisions can take a while to gain consensus and proceed to implementation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Rapid deployment isn't bad provided the service is valuable, better a rushed implementation at the right time than a planned implementation far behind schedule.
