    I have been working at University of Southern California full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are excellent, as is attention to work/life balance for most areas within the university. Great working hours (unless you're in IT or Facilities), and

    Cons

    Lower salaries than market, but that's to be expected at most HigherEd institutions. However, it's difficult to keep top talent unless something other than money brings them in. Also, inertia for established relationships, procedures, etc., is difficult to overcome.
