    I have been working at University of Chicago full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    My department respects me a person and as an employee. They respect my time and the fact that we have lives outside of work.

    Cons

    I work in a high pressure environment with big deadlines. Pay raises are small but my job is flexible so that is a good trade. My commute from the other side of the city is tough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep respecting your employees and recognize that we are adults who can make smart decisions. We don't need to be watched every second.
