Pros

Great pay and benefits, lots of vacation time. Also, there is a lot of workplace pride at the U.

Cons

There is always a lot of pressure to downsize departments and cut costs. There is also a culture that is status-conscious based on one's place in the hierarchy of the U staff.

Advice to Management

Invest in your employees and set them up for success and you will have an even better workplace ecosystem.

    Pros

    Great staff and quality professors

    Cons

    Not all projects and professors have money to spare. Finding a quality position is hard, but if you are diligent you can land a position. If you are not interested in a funded project I urge you to reconsider.

    Advice to Management

    Get a larger TA budget! You need a way to support your students before a professor picks them up.
