I have been working at University of Wisconsin full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Very flexible work hours in a self-driven environment. To succeed at UW you need to be a self driven person who knows their stuff. There are a lot of opportunities to do ground up application implementation which can be a lot of fun.

Cons

There are too many projects for the number of technical staff. While many projects are interesting the constant context switching can get to be a drag.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fewer managers, more developers.

    I worked at University of Wisconsin full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    A state with a strong union presence and a still-respectable civil service ethic; lower cost-of-living then the coasts; excellent public education system (and generally a nice place to raise kids); academic environment; friendly people in the area.

    Cons

    Broad disconnect between central and campus IT operations; lackadaisical upper management; difficulty in progressing internally (inadequate career path at the upper levels); terrible climate.
