    Pros

    Amazing benefits, great life/work balance, fairly laid back yet exciting enough to be interesting. There are a lot of opportunities to do things but you do have to be proactive about itl

    Cons

    There is a lots of politics there. If you want to move up to a senior level you will need to know or learn how to navigate. Also, there can be a lot of dead weight (it is a university, after all!)

    "Education and Tuition Benefits are a MAJOR bonus"

    Pros

    The tuition benefits are probably one of the best perks of working at Penn. In fact, they are encouraged by the school and management.

    Cons

    For the younger crowd just entering the work force.... Universities can usually find cheap student labor so you run the risk of being underpaid. They also like to hire temp workers for administrative jobs and treat them like workhorses (temps are also not offered health benefits). This is not true in every case but I have definitely seen this first hand- and the temp was a Penn grad!
