    I worked at University of Washington part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good city to live in, lots of outdoor opportunities, easy to bike to work, lots of beautiful outdoor spaces, and intelligent undergraduates.

    Cons

    Pay is low, our union has been taken advantage of, and our voice is not heard in making any decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to students and lecturers. They are often the most close to the ground level and appreciate all that is happening. Our sentiments often predict the outcome of management decisions.

    Current Employee - IT Director in Seattle, WA

    I have been working at University of Washington full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great organizational mission; intellectual and entrepreneurial if you're in a knowledge-worker position.

    Cons

    Navigating distributed decision making can be cumbersome; things take longer than they should.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue doing what you're doing. Distributed decision making is by design and inherent in an academic model, so can't be avoided.
