I have been working at University of Washington full-time

Pros

Great place for research and science, top rated School of Medicine, bright scientists and researchers.

Cons

Bad and wasteful administration, stiff policies especially for foreigners, salary freeze of scientists supported by federal and private fund but not the administrative staff because they are in union.
