No opinion of CEO

Pros

Flexible environment, lots of smart people, lot of dumb people. Very big place so YMMV in different departments - very decent benefits although things are changing.

Cons

Very difficult to advance without transferring around to different departments. A lot of deadwood employees just hanging around to collect retirement. Having to deal with faculty can be a headache sometimes.

Advice to Management

Not really - it is such a distributed environment it depends on where you are in the university, some places are great others not so much.
