Pros

Administration has their collective heads on right.
Creative, forward-thinking workplace that encourages people to contribute their ideas.
Priorities focused on people--students, researchers, employees--and delivering a good experience to the client.
Competitive pay.
Excellent benefits, including tuition remission.
A strong sense of community and civic engagement.
The students! Ambitious, enthusiastic and involved with the school.

Cons

Things are a bit wobbly currently (2012-2013) as a lot of administrative changes are happening.
A number of colleges and areas in the university have had a growth spike that's left things chaotic as they scramble to re-organize and adapt.

    Pros

    Benefits package, pay rate was ok considering the other benefits you get including free education. A lot of different departments you can work under.

    Cons

    Can be very cut throat. Management doesn't care about their employees advancing and bettering themselves, they only care about themselves. It can be very clicky and University contributions to benefits are on the decline.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your employees, take care of them and they will take care of you.
