    I have been working at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits are ridiculously good. 26 paid vacation days every year, Medical insurance costs about $60/month for 100% coverage, Tuition waivers for any classes you want to take in the University system.

    Cons

    Salary is lower than what you can get elsewhere, and advancement is not as easy to come by.

  2.  

    Okay, but siloed. Pay isn't competitive and politics abounds.

    I worked at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Co-workers (non-management) are good people. Casual atmosphere. Flexible schedule. Minimal to no unpaid OT.

    Cons

    Politics. Salary inequality. Below-grade salaries due to "excellent" pension/benefits likely to get cut to fix state fiscal woes, but without any recompense to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to fix compensation and internal promotion issues.
