    I have been working at Rutgers University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best reason to work here is the pay and benefits. The pay is very good, and the company provides excellent health benefits and time off.

    Cons

    The promotions process is quite difficult. You may find yourself in the same position for some time. Also there are other problems such as parking that can come into effect. Could find yourself circling around a lot for a spot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should be more willing to listen to the ideas that professors present to them. Also the promotions process needs to be worked on as well.
