    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.

    Pros

    It is a huge school, very diverse. And Columbus is a good place to work, large enough to have all kinds of amenities and opportunities.

    Cons

    Pay is low in our department, but it depends on departments.
