Pros

Employees are friendly and cooperative.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It depends on departments.

    I have been working at University of Minnesota full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The U of M truly strives - every day - to hold its rank as a top-10 public research university. Research and innovation are prominently celebrated, and campus-wide participation is encouraged and honored.

    Cons

    The U of M is mind-bogglingly massive - the Minneapolis campus is four times the size of my entire home town, with 10 thousand employees and 50 thousand students. They just don't have the patience to hold your hand and coddle you through a career path, so you'll be expected to move your own career along with hard work and determination (and switching departments to get what you want).

    Pros

    Academia can be exciting and there are a lot of cool things going on at the University of Minnesota. The people are really nice to work with. Sometimes have flexible hours, but depending on the position there might be a lot more work to do with respect to pay.

    Getting a discount on courses can be nice, too!

    Cons

    Public sector means low pay, at least in the positions I had. Sometimes expected to work more than 40 hours per week. Have to pay for parking typically, which can be $50 - $100 per month.
