I worked at University of Michigan

Pros

1) Excellent work/life balance: there is no push to work long hours
2) Supervisors are happy to support requests for tuition reimbursement
3) Once hired, there are many opportunities to move within the University

Cons

1) The university is extremely decentralized, making many attempts at change nearly impossible because of the number of potential veto-points
2) The pay is not great

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make a point of encouraging employees in non-leadership positions to suggest and take ownership of operational changes. The bureaucracy stifles a lot of good ideas.

    I have been working at University of Michigan

    Pros

    A large university with a good variety of jobs and departments. You learn a lot by observing the communication and cooperation between departments and institutions and you can also get a lot of responsibility.

    Cons

    Academic pay is not very good and unless you have a regular job, there are no benefits really. Shuttling between Central and North Campus can be annoying.

    I have been working at University of Michigan

    Pros

    Great benefits offered at University of Michigan. They are great in everything - law, medicine, research, undergraduate education. Great place to live - although on the expensive side.

    Cons

    It's definitely hard to get "in" to the staff without knowing someone. Having a friend here is a good thing.
