Pros

Employees are friendly and cooperative.

Cons

A university has clearly a different rank system to other industries. Unless you are a faculty member, your promotion can be limited.

Advice to Management

It depends on departments.

    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).


  2. Poor pay.
