I have been working at University of Toronto full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Smart people, great benefits, vacation, flex-time, interesting work. The software projects have real world applications and you can see their benefits.

Cons

Depends a lot on your supervisor if you get opportunities to perform and show what you can do. Significant bureaucracy - things take forever to get agreement and decisions to be made. Resources can be scarce and technology can be slow to change.

Advice to Management

Delegate! Trust in your employee's abilities and give them some credit. They will rise to your expectations.
