    Pros

    The atmosphere is great. Everyone is very friendly and helpful and determined to make sure the work is done.

    Cons

    I don't really have any cons to say about the University right now. It is just that awesome

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide such a positive energy to the work atmosphere. It is what drives employees to always put forth their best effort to make sure the work is done.

    Pros

    In an educational environment there were many additional benefits beyond your salary. There were opportunities to attend school, participate in seminars, reduced prices for gym facilities, built-in health check-ups at several of the Medical Campus departments.

    Cons

    There is low employee turnover, so the opportunities for upward mobility and professional growth are stifled to some extent.

    Advice to Management

    There was access to further education and professional development opportunities, but receiving permission from individual departments to participate was difficult at best and usually resulted in an employee being turned down for participation. Having equitable access to these opportunities would provide greater employee-job satisfaction.

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with and fun projects. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Some Doctors on the medical campus can be extremely rude. Some of them should just stick to medicine.

    Pros

    The campus is beautiful and there are lots of perks with the surrounding community when it comes to discounts. It's education, so the summer are laid back and they offered a shortened work week in the summer (4 days) if you wanted to add a few extra hours during the other work days.

    Cons

    The bureaucracy is horrible. It is very student-driven, but not so much employee focused. It does make sense because it is a school; however, employees can sometimes feel like second class citizens. The salaries are not conducive to the cost of living. There are favorites in executive positions that have very visible favoritism.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. Work/life balance is reasonable. Stable.

    Cons

    Compensation is about $5-7K below market rate expectations. Terrible vacation accrual system. Management is geared toward consensus building.

    Advice to Management

    Staff, not faculty, power the University. When you do not take care of them, the exodus will continue. No staff, no University.
