    Former Employee - Senior Systems Developer  in  Columbus, OH
    Former Employee - Senior Systems Developer in Columbus, OH

    I worked at The Ohio State University full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - University environment
    - Great benefits, I mean they have their own network/hospital
    - Easy to get time off when you need it.
    - They prefer to hire from within, and there are lots of different opportunities

    Cons

    - Middle management is distrustful of employees
    - Some employees need to be fired, but it's a state job, so they stick around.
    - Funding is sporadic and confusing. Needed projects take forever for funding approval. Quotes from vendors ofter expire due to delays
    - Employees who excel are often dragged down to mediocrity due to overwhelming bureaucracy and unreasonable policy
    - When sharing concerns with peers, I would often hear "you just care too much"
    - Some teams are held to security policys, others are not. Whoever complains the most, gets their way
    - Security team (50+ people) play by their own rules, often ignoring change management
    - Even the tiniest aspect of the technology stack has an separate employee who's responsible. Trying to change things is met with resistance because "you're invading someone's turf"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Start the firing process for those who are repeat offenders of policy.
    - Listen to lower level employees. Middle management is often sugar-coating facts
    - Invest in technology. You're a premiere university, your IT shouldn't be 10 years behind

    Pros

    Good research facilities, Good working environment

    Cons

    They offer lowest salaries, even a fresh graduate earns more than a postdoc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should devise salary grades based on education and experience. They can follow the footsteps of nations like, Germany, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark.
