Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Somewhat altruistic, if you actually get to help students through their college career.

Cons

Culture of many departments is: Faculty are gods, staff are scum. Faculty gets all the pay raises, staff have gone 9 years without a raise - until this year when they got 2%. If they were lucky. Faculty treats staff like slaves.

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

    Pros

    You are surrounded by many smart people. Good health insurance program. The paid is reasonably good.

    Cons

    Many positions are reliant on federal grant money and much of that is drying up as funding for federal grants is cut and competition is getting higher.
