I have been working at University of Pittsburgh full-time (More than 3 years)
High meaning in work, unlimited opportunities for learning (even outside the traditional classroom), supervisors who care, and excellent coworkers. Good paths for career growth within certain schools/departments. Fantastic healthcare benefits. Pitt is probably one of the best Universities in the country when it comes to making the best out of what they have, even with limited funds compared to bigger/private universities. Pitt truly is Pittsburgh's University: tough, gritty, diverse, hard working, and punching above their weight class.
Certainly uneven experiences across the University. I've been blessed to work with a supervisor who has encouraged and found opportunities for me to growth personally and professionally. This being a state related school, pay is under what one could expect in private industry or even at private schools. Essentially no work from home is a big con and time off is pretty bad for the first five years. In an age where everyone seems to be working from home with three weeks of vacation, the lack of these benefits can be painful. These cons obviously lead to some major retention issues.
Advice to Management
Benefits are mostly great but we need to implement a smart approach to work from home and be more flexible in regards to paid time off. Also, needs to be a serious investment into pay/compensation. Pitt hurts itself by continuously training and creating top tier talent that leaves for other schools or higher paying opportunities in industry. The loss of institutional knowledge from high turnover is a major threat to continued excellence. Things don't seem to really change or get done unless there is major buy in from the top and one or two individuals putting forth immense effort. Increase staffing levels where it make sense!
The first in-person job interview is typically a one-on-one interview between the applicant and a hiring manager. The interviewer will ask questions about the applicant's experience and skills, work history, availability, and the qualifications the company is seeking in the optimal candidate for the job.
