    Pros

    The campus is beautiful, there is fascinating research going on and it's rewarding to work on advanced research. The business end of UW seems to be reasonable efficient, at least it's better than other universities I've worked at.

    Cons

    Funding can be unstable for academic projects, so you can end up working on a project that is discontinued which can be frustrating. The U District does have some crime issues.


  2. My UW job has been fun and stimulating in that it provides me with many opportunities for problem solving and learning.

    Pros

    Co-workers are interesting and smart, the work changes and requires the team to change and learn too. The UW has good fringe benefits.

    Cons

    The pay scale is too low.

    Advice to Management

    Notice where employee's level of skill and knowledge is. Encourage and build from this point focusing on strengths. Meet with employee occasionally in formal or informal ways and listen to their goals, share the goals of the organization with the employee and be clear about their role, how it can change and what they can do to make it change,
