A great place to work if you're more concerned about quality of life than about salary

I have been working at University of Michigan full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Benefits are excellent, lots of vacation, and you work with (and often for) really smart people. And you know your company isn't going to be sold or shut down. It's a stable employer. Also, in most parts of the University, there isn't a lot of pressure. (This varies.)

Cons

Pay is lower than in private industry (but see benefits above), and raises are terrible. Not as exciting. Few opportunities for travel in most positions. Quality of management varies dramatically. Some very dysfunctional people can get entrenched, and you have to work with them.

    Pros

    Very supportive of employees. Great place to grow.

    Pay can be on the lower side but the benefits more than make up for it. Like all places bureaucracy can be annoying
