Disapproves of CEO

I worked at University of Washington full-time (More than a year)

Pros

okay benefits and pay. Many vacation days

Cons

extremely boring. people gain influence based on how long they have worked for the UW, not on their skill or current knowledge. The "top" network engineers know all about thicknet and atm but don't know anything about mpls or ipv6.

You really feel like a state employee, unfortunately

    I have been working at University of Washington part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work schedule. Easy job. It is good to be able to work any hours I want to be able to study if needs be.

    Cons

    The computer systems are old and poorly set up. The printers are a pain and take a lot of maintenance. Getting a bunch of errands that take precedence over others for no good reason.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the boss, he is not the most knowledgeable about computing though.
