I worked at University of Washington full-time (More than 5 years)

As with all academic positions, salary is little below industry (but compensated for with amazing PTO, flexible hours, and medical costs).

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

    Pros

    good benefits, innovative research, flexible schedule, excellent reputation

    Cons

    a tendency for management to protect research faculty over middle-management staff regardless of how inept some faculty are in the management of their staff. To be fair, a tendency to protect "more valuable staff" is not unusual-UW is simply doing what you would expect. In my particular group, complacency and loyalty were valued assets more so than others.

    Advice to Management

    Please teach the faculty how to be managers. It'll make the university that much better.
