    I have been working at University of Michigan full-time

    Pros

    Depending on the department you're in, you can have a great work-life balance, a good salary, and amazing benefits. Full time staff accrue up to 2 vacation days per month; retirement matching is 2-to-1. They have wellness programs and as a staff member you can take workout classes at a deep discount or get a yearly reimbursement for your gym membership.

    Cons

    You may make slightly less than you would if you worked in the corporate world. For me, the benefits more than make up for it.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, MI) in June 2009.

    Interview

    I applied online through the University of Michigan's website. I was contacted about a week later to schedule an in-person interview. The interview itself was conducted by two people and was about forty five minutes long. I was offered the position roughly a week later and I accepted. I enjoyed the position, Michigan is a great place to work!
