    I worked at University of Washington full-time

    Pros

    Leave time accrued (after many years)

    Cons

    No raise in years, was expected to perform job duties way above pay grade (and take on co-workers work in their absence who were far above my pay grade). No merit raises or promotion in job title to reward hard work, competency or taking on additional higher level work. Forced union membership.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to nickel and dime your good employees- get rid of the fat and reward high performing staff. It would be cheaper than re-training the constant turnover. Good people will move on to higher paying companies.

    I have been working at University of Washington full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible, standard benefits and perks of academia. Large amounts of opportunity in terms of successful faculty members to work with and collaborations you can make career wise. Great research university, experience will depend on individual situation (lab) you are in, but university as a whole is great. Supportive graduate programs and university resources for graduate students

    Cons

    Also comes with standard lower pay of academia and possibility of being overworked depending on the lab you end up in. For me this was not the case as my PI is great but something to be aware of.
