    Pros

    Good atmosphere, friendly colleagues and supervisors

    Cons

    The pay is terrible, even for academia, and the workload is overwhelming. Budget constraints prevent administrators from hiring the appropriate number of people, and most employees are doing the work of at least two people. Upward mobility is limited at the University.

    Properly pay/compensate your employees; provide more opportunities for career growth.
