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 Management

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
