The University of Washington is a great place to work.

Research Scientist III (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

I have been working at University of Washington full-time for less than a year

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

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good intentions, too resource-strapped and bureacratic to innovate.

I worked at University of Washington part-time


Pros: Large, stable institution. Work-life balance is definitely possible. About as consistent as you can get in today's economy. As a… Cons: Ugh--so much bureaucracy it can be maddening. Lots of stagnation--many people have been in the same job for so long that they're burnt out, detached and… Advice to Senior Management: Be more honest and transparent about the value and goals of each department. Work to simplify processes… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
