    Pros

    excellent staff at all levels of the institution. Benefits are very good since it is a state institution. Employee expectations are high.

    Cons

    Lower salary than the norm but still works to be competitive. Long hours. Expenctations for employees are high. It is not a job for someone who is looking for an easy, low stress, job.
