Relationship building is key. Team more than individual culture. Don't upset the status quo. Understand the politics.

Current Employee - Project Manager in Los Angeles, CA

Pros

Ample vacation/sick. Can use vacation. Hard work is recognized. Opportunities to grow. Discount off of tuition. Open to change in some departments. Regular hours in most departments.

Cons

Increased pension contributions each year without regular raises to offset this and inflation. 8% of salary before taxes now taken to contribute to pension. Pension is a great option if you plan stay 5+ years, however, with that same amount you could invest on your own so not as much of a benefit as it once was.
No paid maternity. Very political.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Add clear career paths and options for flex schedule or work from home to save on traffic, parking fees, and gas to offset other costs and lower salaries. Regular raises for standard of living.

    Certain parts of the Universtiy plays Team Work. So, I love this concept.

    Some peoplel at the University don't like like playing Team work, so it makes the job more difficult.
