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

    Pros

    One of the best parts of working for a university is the dedication and commitment to personal professional development. The University has ample opportunity to explore learning opportunities. There are many opportunities to advance in your selected career within the university. There is a great deal of diversity and a commitment to growing the diversity of the faculty, staff and student body.

    Cons

    One challenge at the university is working through all the bureaucratic red tape. It can be difficult to change processes.

    I have been working at University of Washington full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits are amazing with increasing vacation accrual the longer you stay, reasonable sick leave, and fantastic retirement benefits. If you enjoy working in an academic environment where you're surrounded by other researchers and many fascinating projects, you will enjoy working at UW. The UPASS is an amazingly affordable and convenient way to get to campus. Many positions that are hiring prefer to hire from the pool of current UW employees so once you're in the system, there are many opportunities for alternative employment.

    Cons

    It can be annoying trying to navigate campus in-between class periods when student traffic is high. However, that is when I have to remind myself I'm working on a college campus.
