    I have been working at University of Washington part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    UW-IT is very well-managed and they promote a positive culture. The department encourages employee development and when graduation is near, they help make the way out easier. It was a joy to work with the department. There are several perks for students looking to work part-time, such as flexible schedules, easy commute from classes, and co-workers who are also students.

    Cons

    To get the most out of the available positions, you need to be a Freshman or Sophomore at the university when starting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

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

    Pros

    Somewhat altruistic, if you actually get to help students through their college career.

    Cons

    Culture of many departments is: Faculty are gods, staff are scum. Faculty gets all the pay raises, staff have gone 9 years without a raise - until this year when they got 2%. If they were lucky. Faculty treats staff like slaves.
