    Pros

    The benefits is primarily the best part of working in U.W. It is great for an employee who has family. The UW fairly compensates via health benefits to make sure their employees are protected. Other than that, the work consistency is there, so there isn't too much of a surprise when changes occur.

    Cons

    The measurement of growth and reward is universally structured because of internal control. Departments can't do much to be flexible. It is good structure for people who prefer yearly increases of salary based on dedicated experience. Not the best structure for ambitious driven individuals. Although with proper patience, it can be manageable.

    Advice to Management

    Good leadership. U.W. is highly influenced by the State, so flexibility on processes can be long and strenuous. Good place to work for employees with family to take advantage of the great benefits.
