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
