Pros

is one of the most popular universities and it gathers lots of talented students in it. Undoubtedly, besides its good academia, it has a very nice campus that students can enjoy their time in it.

Cons

Its quarter based system and fast system makes students not to learn the courses very deep.

    Pros

    Stable - short of people abuse or setting the campus on fire, you can pretty rest assured that you won't be laid off or fired. It is a government job.

    Benefits package is great, and if you're a lifer their retirement benefits are also quite outstanding.

    Cons

    Related to Pros, but since they can't fire people, you have a lot (A LOT!) of incompetent people working at very high, and mid, levels. People that would not survive a week in a corporate environment before getting fired.

    Lots of red tape. Throw away any reasonable expectations out the door. Something that in a corporate environment would take 2 hours to a day to get done here it can take upwards of a year. Not kidding about it either.

    Unless you're tenured faculty the options for growth of staff are somewhat reasonable, but nowhere near great.
