    Current Employee - Associate Research Specialist
    Current Employee - Associate Research Specialist

    Pros

    Amazing benefits (although I worked here "pre-Walker")
    Decent pay (my pay was low, but my job responsibilities were minimal)
    Lots of vacation, sick time and personal time off
    You are surrounded by very smart people
    High job security

    Cons

    It is easy to get stuck in one career path. The university is so large that job responsibilities can be narrow.
    Grant funded jobs are dependent on funding being renewed
    Good luck securing and affording parking (take the bus or bike)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My managers were fantastic, but this can vary depending on your department, the school you work for, etc. People are promoted on experience and skills, not necessarily on their ability to manage people.
