    Pros

    Great benefits and I mean great. Pay for kids college if they go to Wash U or half of their college if they go somewhere else. Ability to take classes at UCollege, great health insurance. Sick days and vacation days are numerous. Flexible schedule.

    Cons

    You don't make enough and that number never grows. You may get a 1 or 2% increase in salary per year. So you're stuck in the lower/mid 30's forever. On top of that there is zero room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the people who don't do any work! Reward the people who do the most/take on responsibility/show leadership. It is very disheartening to watch someone stand around and talk all day while you bust your butt, knowing that you make the same and that your raises will be the same, and that you'll never graduate from the position you're in now.
