Pros

1) Excellent work/life balance: there is no push to work long hours
2) Supervisors are happy to support requests for tuition reimbursement
3) Once hired, there are many opportunities to move within the University

Cons

1) The university is extremely decentralized, making many attempts at change nearly impossible because of the number of potential veto-points
2) The pay is not great

Advice to Management

Make a point of encouraging employees in non-leadership positions to suggest and take ownership of operational changes. The bureaucracy stifles a lot of good ideas.

    Pros

    Great benefits offered at University of Michigan. They are great in everything - law, medicine, research, undergraduate education. Great place to live - although on the expensive side.

    Cons

    It's definitely hard to get "in" to the staff without knowing someone. Having a friend here is a good thing.
