    Like working at any large university, your experience will absolutely depend on your individual unit. In my experience at UW the university was unwilling to pay people what they were worth, or hire enough people to keep a unit functionally running. UW pays a lot of lip-service to work/life balance and wellness and supporting employees' mental health, but while I was expected to provide this understanding and flexibility to employees on my team (and was happy to do so as their manager) the same was not offered to me from my supervisors. I went 7 months without a single check-in from my direct supervisor (over 2 entire quarters) during the height of the pandemic. Working at UW was the worst professional experience of my life.
