I have been working at University of Kentucky

Pros

Good Benefits, Many different jobs available, Good place for entry level work, ok school for career advancement, decent healthcare system

Cons

too many reorgs, raises and job security not certain, lots of incompetent managers, people have atittude that you are either a short timer or here for life.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

listen to your employees, stop building new building and give out some raises, advance the intelligent people not just those that have been there the longest
