I have been working at University of Puget Sound full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

The faculty here are truly incredible. They're excellent researchers and scholars, but all share a deep desire to connect with students and inspire them to do their best. The students are strong overall, and the best of them are truly excellent. Location is nice as well.

Cons

The university has implemented a fixed pay scale across academic departments. While some might consider this a plus, it has the unfortunate consequence of making it hard to hire in departments that have traditionally commanded a salary premium at other instutions (e.g. Econ or Business).

Advice to Management

Workload is enormous. Breeds discontent.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at University of Puget Sound as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very motivated team, good compensation, and plenty of chances to expand career experience.

    Cons

    Occasionally the bureaucracy of things slows down the speed at which it takes to complete tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Managers are really good at setting expectations at the beginning of projects, but as the project picks up and everyone gets busier, it is much more difficult to communicate.
