    I worked at University of Washington full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with the students - although there is a growing number who give off a sense that they are "entitled."

    Cons

    Medical, Dental, and Nursing schools are steeped in hierarchy and turf protection. Cronyism is a real problem. Devil Wears Prada atmosphere where woman on woman bullying is the norm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch where there are areas of large turnover. Seek out information about bad management by faculty - bullying of students and staff. Students at least have a voice - staff feel small, voiceless, and defenseless.

    I have been working at University of Washington full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Medical benefits are outstanding in a low-stress environment. Not a bad place to work if you are looking for a secure, low paying job and have a medical condition. Performance evaluation process and unions make it difficult to get fired. WA state labor policy appears to make downsizing difficult.

    Cons

    From an administrative perspective, does not appear to be a good place to work if you are in a management position and appreciate efficiency. Internal training programs appear to be non-existent for administrative staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Conduct formal, biennial (at a minimum depending on performance) performance reviews of lower-level support positions.
