    I have been working at University of Washington full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent program overall (department in the biomedical sciences)

    Cons

    None come to mind that don't already come with the territory for grad school. Tough program but good training.

    Advice to Management

    Broaden expectations of students' careers (i.e. less than half end up staying in academia - accept it and keep the training program relevant). Younger faculty are usually better at this; senior faculty take note.


  2. "Great Student Job!"

    I worked at University of Washington part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Excellent balance with classes and work, I worked about 10-15 hours a week with a full course load.
    -Really laid back workplace.
    -Fun and laid-back coworkers.
    -Lots of autonomy and flexibility to work on what you want, you get to decide for yourself on what to improve and work on.

    Cons

    -Can be slow in terms of pace
    -Low pay
    -Silos, working cross-functionally is a pain in the rear. No one likes to share.
    -Not good for ambitious people who want to do more.
    -As with every academic institution it comes with the office politics.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier to collaborate with other groups. Really focus on providing better services for your main users: Students, Staff, and Faculty.
