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

Pros

A foot in the door allowed me to enjoy a solid start to my career which included 3 upward moves. I had access to training, great benefits and workshops. The institution is huge so you have a lot of room for horizontal movement as long as you can adjust to different departments' culture.

Cons

A semi-public institution, in many cases it feels like a government job. The dynamics and upward mobility of your job often depends on your supervisor and unit director. Change takes a long time to happen.
Compensation is also lower than market, given that this is a partially-public funded institution (or in some cases, research grant funded).

Advice to Management

Implement more flexibility in hiring, job descriptions, new initiatives.
