Pros

Really depends on your department. Overall it is challenging to overcome the bureaucracy and feel like you can really get things done. Quality of life is great. Out the door at 5 on the dot. Great benefits=golden handcuffs.

Cons

Very siloed environment. Initiative is not encouraged or rewarded. Many people have stayed too long, don't want to lose their benefits and don't have much drive.

Advice to Management

Open yourselves up to change. Utilize performance reviews to acknowledge good performance and work to improve sub-par work. Encourage employees to develop within their roles.

    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 Management

    Give me a tenured position.
