    The pay is insulting - unless you have a PhD AND have a plan to create world peace, cure cancer or restore the environment.

    I have been working at Indiana University full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great colleagues, flexible work environment, supportive of professional development

    Cons

    Pay is highly linked to position type, education, and years of experience. There is little flexibility for performance pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Opening up wage/salary to factor in more performance and experience rather than education and position would be a big morale and productivity booster.
