    I have been working at Carnegie Mellon University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    CMU encompasses a very intelligent and respectful environment. This extends for students, faculty and staff. Being part of the community has been wonderful. The employee benefits are generous, including comprehensive insurance and retirement packages.

    Cons

    Salary at CMU is low compared to industry means. There are some caveats to how some of the advertised benefits can be utilized, including long vesting periods and taxable tuition remission.
