    I have been working at University of Southern California full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working at a university gives you access to an array of educational (obviously) tools and events that help one strengthen one's skill set and widen one's network easily. Exciting events and things to do at all times ... life as if one is a student, only now you're getting paid!

    Cons

    Having to negotiate between different Schools -- different internal systems, bureaucracy, dissolving departments, faculty/co-workers coming and going.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn about who'd been there before you from those who have seen changes and can advise you on what may be next, who you should know, why you don't want to create fissures
