I worked at University of Arizona full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The best university I've worked for in my career. Flat organization with room to grow. Promote good people and good people are recognized.

Cons

The ups and downs of working for a state right now; uncertain budgets, the demand to be more self sufficient in funding puts pressure on each department and individual.

    I have been working at University of Arizona full-time

    Pros

    The pace is very lax, so if you're looking for a unstressful job, this would be a good fit. There is no sense of urgency. Generally speaking, it is a pretty hands-off management style. All employees get very reduced tuition, so if you are trying to gain a degree for your self, your spouse, or your dependent, this is a great deal.

    Cons

    There is so much decentralization at the UA, it makes it difficult to move forward on core marketing activities. Compensation is very low, but if you use the tuition benefit, it's worth it. Funding is always risky as the state and federal funds continue to diminish.

    Advice to Management

    Create a centralized marketing function that serves as an agency for all units, departments, colleges. This would help create and reinforce a strong brand for the University.
