I have been working at Georgetown University full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Georgetown has great benefits (medical, holidays, vacation), flexible schedule for many jobs, friendly people who are happy to come to work, stable work environment with little to no layoffs. There are often impressive guest speakers on a variety of topics.
The university has been around almost as long as the country itself.

Cons

No actual raises in 10 years. The "merit" salary increase pool is about the same or less than COLA.
Guest speakers sessions with the most interest fill up in about 1 minute.
With such a long heritage, and no layoffs, many inefficient systems, processes, and departments stay around longer than they should.

Advice to Management

Provide for raises and for promotions within a job. Reduce to 37.5 hour week.
Provide guest speakers with a larger venue such as the gym.
