    I have been working at George Washington University part-time

    Pros

    GWU provides a great chance to work on the research support, high performance clusters, IT help, and web development. People here are nice and working environment is so good.

    Cons

    The university is non-profit organization so the salary won't be as much as industry. Some managers might not be tech people so sometimes it brings hard time.

    Advice to Management

    It should better for them to be more familiar with tech, but not only management. A manager who knows the tech will help improving efficiency.
