    Pros

    Excellent benefits, even at a part-time status. Very supportive in furthering education. Completed Masters degree with minimal loans due benefit of 6 free credits per quarter. Flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Administration disconnected with employees. Large organization. Very little positive reinforcement, tends to function on assume you are doing well unless told otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    Caution with favoritism, encourage more positive feedback.

    Pros

    Good work environment and excellent benefits

    Cons

    Low pay No emphasis on career planning or development for staff Hierarchical "academic" environment Very different work "culture" depending on which School/Department you end up in

    Advice to Management

    I know the focus of the UW is on research and teaching but remember that staff are vital to the success of your mission. Departments need to have plans for staff development in place and there should be a better evaluation system for department administrators - ours has only been reviewed once in 25 years! Staff on the frontline of implementing policies should be able to anonymously evaluate supervisors and give feedback on department and university processes.
