    Pros

    Great benefits (healthcare, retirement matching, and vacation) but slightly eroded over the past decade.

    Cons

    Pay for certain positions does not keep up with increases in cost of living. Processing a raise in the bureaucracy can be like pulling teeth sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Hold the benefits or increase salary but if either go in the wrong direction without the other improving, not many people will want to work here anymore even if you call yourself a world class institution.


  2. Ok, good benefits, too many politics.
