    Pros

    Healthcare, up to 5% matching retirement contributions, tuition reimbursement, tuition assistance for your children when they go to college. Research facilities at the School of Medicine are state of the art and enjoyable to work in.

    Cons

    Low salaries, but that is endemic to academia in general. Convoluted HR process for getting raises/promotions.

    Pros

    Stimulating environment, knowledgeable people, try to improve experience of patients and medical students (i work in Medical school), top-of-the-line expertise, fosters collaboration

    Cons

    Older colleagues may be stuck on certain ways, relatively slow to adapt to new ideas, bureaucracy like in most big institutions

    Advice to Management

    be more flexible, get feedback from people under you and REALLY use it (not just to fill the paper)
