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

Pros

Seattle is great, the university is vibrant and... well... Seattle is great.

Cons

Large university means a LOT of students, a lot of bureaucracy and a lot of distractions. Football is huge here, so be prepared for a wash of scholl colors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give me a tenured position.

    I like working for the UW. Only if UW sponsors H1B for staffs, I would like it even more.

    Current Employee - Lab Technician II in Seattle, WA

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

    Pros

    Nice environment, people there is really friendly. Great life insurance, medical, eye and dental. I had great experience with my previous lab jobs.

    Cons

    Doesn't sponsor H1B visa unless you're a faculty or fellow. Also, there is a lab that is heavily dominated by a certain race.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the place I am working at: Less nepotism. Consider a raise if the employee is qualified and have talked about it.
