I have been working at University of Washington full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Great organizational mission; intellectual and entrepreneurial if you're in a knowledge-worker position.

Cons

Navigating distributed decision making can be cumbersome; things take longer than they should.

Advice to Management

Continue doing what you're doing. Distributed decision making is by design and inherent in an academic model, so can't be avoided.

    I have been working at University of Washington full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The University of Washington provides good benefits and is in a location with a wide variety of affordable restaurants within a short walk. I find it a low stress work environment.

    Cons

    Being a State University, UW has had a salary freeze for the last few years. Even us lowly postdocs can't get salary increases.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way for those due salary increases with grant money available to pay their salary increases to get what they are due.


  2. "A great learning experience."

    Pros

    Working at the University of Washington is a great opportunity to give back to the school, and as a TA, to directly give back to your department. Great coworkers and a feeling of accomplishment and appreciation from working.

    Cons

    Sometimes the hours suck, but most of the time it's fine. The base pay is decent, but not amazing. Occasionally interferes with schoolwork.
