I worked at University of Puget Sound as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

Very motivated team, good compensation, and plenty of chances to expand career experience.

Cons

Occasionally the bureaucracy of things slows down the speed at which it takes to complete tasks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Managers are really good at setting expectations at the beginning of projects, but as the project picks up and everyone gets busier, it is much more difficult to communicate.

    I have been working at University of Puget Sound full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The faculty here are truly incredible. They're excellent researchers and scholars, but all share a deep desire to connect with students and inspire them to do their best. The students are strong overall, and the best of them are truly excellent. Location is nice as well.

    Cons

    The university has implemented a fixed pay scale across academic departments. While some might consider this a plus, it has the unfortunate consequence of making it hard to hire in departments that have traditionally commanded a salary premium at other instutions (e.g. Econ or Business).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Workload is enormous. Breeds discontent.

    Some people have been there forever and could have benefitted from moving on.
