I have been working at George Washington University full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The location is great. The people are professional and experts in their field. If you take advantage of the discounted education, this can be a great place to work.

Cons

If you don't have a Ph.D, you end up taking on more administrative duties.

    I have been working at George Washington University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The tuition benefits and generous vacation are strong benefits. Good work-life balance (everyone is out the door at 5). Metro accessible.

    Cons

    Absolutely crippling bureaucracy. Management has no innovation or creative qualities. Middle management afraid to make decisions. Touted as "pay for performance" but max raises are capped at 4-5%.

    I have been working at George Washington University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Telecommuting option for some job functions, decent pay, flexible hours, interesting work.

    Cons

    They have trouble firing people, so youre left to deal with terrible coworkers that have been here 20 years and are completely unproductive. Change is slow because of people like this. Raises have been on the decline the past few years due to the economy. The attitude of "at least we are giving raises - if you dont like it you can go TRY to find a job elsewhere" seems prevalent.

    Advice to Management

    Sack up and start firing nonperforming employees. How about a cash bonus from time to time?
