I have been working at University of Idaho full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Great people, good opportunities. Staff can take classes for a very low fee. Medical & retirement benefits are decent. Staff also have access to "sabbaticals". My supervisor is great - the only reason I have stayed on as long as I have.

Cons

Pay raises are almost non-existent, and usually less than 2% when they occur. Promotions have also been on hold for over 3 years now due to "economics".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The economy may not be great, but you can't keep good people around forever if you keep stalling promotions & pay raises.

    I worked at University of Idaho

    Pros

    It was a very flexible environment and everyone is so nice and great :) People understood when life got in the way, I love how they were so nice to me.

    Cons

    It gets cold here, and not everything is accessible. More would be done if the school had a bit more money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing much, they're doing a good job. I think they know what they're doing, even with my job being such a low one, they still treated me with respect.

    I have been working at University of Idaho

    Pros

    Professors I worked for were working on projects that I found interesting and I can now take that experience elsewhere.

    Cons

    Senior management is annoying, budget woes the school have faced forever make things unhappy, and sometimes there are people who should be fired, hired, and kept.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire most of the administration, remove platinum parking, decrease administrative numbers compared to faculty, then increase salaries of good professors.
