    Pros

    okay benefits and pay. Many vacation days

    Cons

    extremely boring. people gain influence based on how long they have worked for the UW, not on their skill or current knowledge. The "top" network engineers know all about thicknet and atm but don't know anything about mpls or ipv6.

    You really feel like a state employee, unfortunately

    Pros

    Huge libraries and academically free atmosphere encourages you to think more openly and contribute to the world as a community.

    Cons

    Doesn't reward too much in terms of finance. Otherwise, it is a great place. If you happen to have a good funding source, this won't be a problem.
