    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    good benefits
    lots of bright coworkers

    Cons

    Supervisors/administrators can't manage themselves out of a paper bag.
    HR is unresponsive; the department's HR rep had a habit of promising to get back to you, then would go off on a week or 2 of vacation, without solving your issue.
    Compensation is low, especially if you get stuck in the bargaining units.
    If you end up as staff on the research studies, expect to be laid off and don't expect to be picked up for a new study unless you really network extremely well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My experience was that we succeeded in spite of management. Treat your people like they're assets and not commodities that you plan to throw out.
