    Pros

    It's a great place to work and we have very nice people here. It's been a very good experience so far. Currently I am on a part time volunteer position and hope to find a full time paid job as soon as possible.

    Cons

    I haven't encountered any so far (may be because I am not working full time here) and also do not go through the management or any sort of formalities/procedures which may give you a chance to gauge a place/organization.

    I worked at University of Utah

    Pros

    Situated in a well kept city in a beautiful natural setting. Slow pace. Very good for families. Cost of living smaller than in other parts of the country.

    Cons

    The people! Most of them are insecure and under trained and very willing to keep things the way they are. They can get defensive and resistant to any change even if that is in their own best interest. Lack of a real community. Very insular and provincial and with no intention to change that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not sure there is any solution. I think that most people in managerial positions got there because they are as the rest and they were trusted not to rock the boat. Very much of what is going on is a portrait of mediocrity as a way of being, thinking and acting. If that is fine with you, you may have a wonderful time and a very quiet and peaceful life. If not, look elsewhere.
