I worked at University of Dayton full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Benefits package is good, tuition remission is great especially for family members..
The university community is very inclusive and friendly of every equal-opportunity factor (age, race, gender, etc).

Cons

Pay is lower than average for the industry (IT), even with tuition remission benefits figured in to the 'total package'. Great for younger employees and first-time employees, or for parents putting their kids thru college, but not for the in-betweens or post-kid adults.
Beaurocracy of the place is overwhelming sometimes. P.C. rules the day to the extreme and can hamper creativity.
Promotions above mid levels can be slow/non-existant (unless they're "laid off").

Advice to Management

Respect your employees, don't do underhanded things. Be open with information and keep people informed as plans develop. Find a way to get anonymous feedback if you really want honest feedback. Remember people want to work in that environment because it -isn't- a big corporation and -doesn't- come with that high stress level and paperwork/red tape.
