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

Pros

Potentially stimulating environment. Pretty campus. Access to libraries, art galleries, athletic center. Some work can be considered valuable to the common good.

Cons

It's a giant public university, so obviously there are a lot of rules/regulations and general "big company" slowness and resistance to change that usually happen.

Advice to Management

Keep up what you are doing. Working with so many students who are constantly graduating can't be easy.

    I have been working at University of Washington full-time

    Pros

    My department is a great place to work. Our students are excellent, our staff top notch, and these attributes enable faculty to focus on their teaching and research. Salaries could be better, but offers elsewhere were never very enticing.

    Cons

    The senior administration under Mark Emmert and Mike Young has lacked transparency, effectiveness and honesty. They have been extraordinarily inept at maintaining support of the state legislature.

    Advice to Management

    Mike Young is not the messiah he is made out to be and the Regents need replace him.
