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

    Pros

    Great benefits, the tuition reimbursement for faculty is generous with a 40% reduction in tuition if your child attends NU, or you can apply that amount to another University.

    It is easy to meet incentive goals for bonuses, although the bonus are relatively conservative.

    Cons

    The starting salaries for junior faculty are low and not easy to increase salary. bonus is easy to qualify for, but are modest in amount.

    Advice to Management

    If starting salary is low, increase as faculty develops.
