I worked at University of Washington full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Really depends on your department. Overall it is challenging to overcome the bureaucracy and feel like you can really get things done. Quality of life is great. Out the door at 5 on the dot. Great benefits=golden handcuffs.

Cons

Very siloed environment. Initiative is not encouraged or rewarded. Many people have stayed too long, don't want to lose their benefits and don't have much drive.

Advice to Management

Open yourselves up to change. Utilize performance reviews to acknowledge good performance and work to improve sub-par work. Encourage employees to develop within their roles.

    I have been working at University of Washington part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great and nice teammates and flexible time schedule are provided by supervisor. I have work-study balance and my supervisor told me I'm totally free to schedule my own time sheet.

    Cons

    I think the downside is it's not a competitive environment like industrial company. It's good for students to work as part-time but not a good start point in career path.
