No opinion of CEO

I worked at University of Pennsylvania full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Healthcare, up to 5% matching retirement contributions, tuition reimbursement, tuition assistance for your children when they go to college. Research facilities at the School of Medicine are state of the art and enjoyable to work in.

Cons

Low salaries, but that is endemic to academia in general. Convoluted HR process for getting raises/promotions.
