Current Employee - Program Coordinator in Seattle, WA
Current Employee - Program Coordinator in Seattle, WA

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

Pros

There is long term stability working for the State of Washington and benefits include generous health care and good retirement options. There are also stable pensions and retirement benefits.

Cons

Although the University of Washington is revolutionary in research, the rest of the institution is slow to change. Change happens at a glacial pace, and I miss working for the dynamic private sector where it feels like you are making a difference.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please use the talents and creativity of your employees. Stop shunning innovation and original thinking.
