    Pros

    Great benefits and wonderful town; pay scale not great for merit and entry level professional positions because the cost of living in Iowa City is high.

    Cons

    Almost every applicant has (or needs) a masters degree, which can mean you work with recent grads who have no real work experience.

    Advice to Management

    Look beyond the glut of recent graduate degree holders; requiring an MS or MA for most assistant level positions overlooks experienced candidates.
