Smart People, dumb politicans

Manager (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

ProsWorking at a University is the great opportunity to work with smart people who are committed to working in the public sector.
IT department management is excellent, has a good grasp of strategic planning, and delivering large-scale services.

ConsPolitics have frozen state salaries for the past five years, so if you entered that long ago your pay is well below average. If you are thinking of working here plan on negotiating for as high a salary as you can get with the expectation that it will not increase.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay and benefits really need to be sorted out, but that is out of their control.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
