Pros

Good benefits. Small enough you feel like part of a community. I have always had great flexibility in my jobs regarding leave and hours.

Cons

Lack of promotion opportunities for research personnel. You can either be a research assistant or senior research assistant and that's it. Many principal investigators either don't have the funding to offer suitable compensation for senior personnel or are unwilling to do so, preferring to hire cheaper, less experienced staff. If you don't ask for the salary you really want when first hired, It is very difficult to get any kind of significant increase, even with a promotion to senior level research assistant.

Advice to Management

Allow more flexibility for compensation for research personnel.

    Pros

    If you are currently employed by Saint Louis University, and have been for a number of years, your children are given cheaper tuition. Being a Jesuit University, they also strive (somewhat) for a good work life balance, which can be hard to find elsewhere in today's economy.

    Cons

    Management can be lacking at times, often times not seeing the big picture, or seeing the big picture and just not caring.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to look up every now and then, and realize what employees are truly excelling at their position. Rewarding hard work is not a bad thing. That being said, don't just reward people because they've been around for a while either. Sometimes doing so keeps the fat from leaving, and benefits nobody in the organization.

    I have been working at Saint Louis University part-time

    Pros

    Diverse international community of students bring great perspectives to classroom, most faculty very energetic, creates a nice intellectual ambiance.

    Cons

    Persistent faculty-admin tensions and culture of negativity, extremely low salaries compared to US, though might be on par for Spain.
