Pros

Access to an immense trove of academic documents and to the faculty and staff of many departments.

Cons

Scale. It is way too big. The shear size of the institution makes it hard to make significant changes to the administrative structure. It is subject to the austerity measures of reduced state and federal funding.

Advice to Management

I work for the IRL lab of the Radiology Department. I am satisfied with this management.

    Pros

    Working 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.

    Cons

    Politics 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 Management

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