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

    Pros

    Great deal of resources (e.g. state of the art equipment) available to research staff. Collection of world class researchers performing high level research.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic nightmare to maneuver around. Extremely top heavy administration, with a large volume of busy work created jobs that do little more than extract indirect costs. Overly ambitious capitol expenditure plan with no real vision of how to occupy the space being built. Poor to non-existent start up packages. Systematic elimination of tenure.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline or "lean-out" executive and middle administrative management. Do more wit less philosophy should apply across the board and not directed at revenue generators (i.e. NIH and NSF funded researchers).
