    I have been working at The Ohio State University

    Pros

    The best part about working for OSU are the benefits, particularly the educational ones. You can often get flex time to take classes.

    Cons

    As far as a career in IT goes, it is very limited. The raises are miniscule and there is not much room for advancement. OSU tends to be management-heavy. There is a 1:1 director/associate director to developer ratio in my department. Management's philosophy is that "you don't need a technical background to manage technology."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-examine the matrix-management model or expect a lot of turnover from your IT workforce. Reduce the number of project managers and directors. Hire IT leadership with technical backgrounds.
