Pros

It is a great place to work, one of the best schools in the nation, and one of the best genetics research is being done here.

Cons

I had some problems with my paperwork for my payroll. I thought I had all taken care of, but now I have to pay extra tax. I was told I am paying the full tax, but apparently I was not.

    Pros

    State Universities have diffuse but hierarchical power structures. There are state rules and regulations, university rules and regulations, faculty rules and regulations, programmatic rules and regulations. This is both a pro and a con. Decent benefits but noncompetitive compensation. Casual dress.

    Cons

    Do not look for enlightened leadership and/or human resources policies here. There is no formal management training. Every office, much less every department, is managed differently. The State Legislature decreed no salary increases for the last four years, even if your source of funding is not from the state.

    Pros

    Gained experience in teaching
    Got paid over minimum wage

    Cons

    The rate that I was offered was withdrawn after I had accepted employment, and they gave me $5 less/hr than they said they would.
    Also, don't expect HR to help you. As a student, their main goal is to squash your argument rather than attempt to reconcile issues between the employee and employer.
