      Best public sector employer

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Better pay than other universities Great overall work culture environment Respectful and ethical employees Employees really care for the mission of the institution Constant institutional training 3% pay increase yearly Small bonus around december, sometimes. Job is generally secure (no layoffs during pandemic) Allowed to work from home during pandemic Can reimburse for continuing education Generous time off and sick time Healthy food selection at cafeterias Generally understanding management

      Cons

      Double the workload compared to other institutions and pressure on timelines Management preaches work-life balance but pushes for the opposite. Management frowns upon extended time off (2 weeks or +) Fast paced, high stress workload Some area managers care more about numbers than the sanity of their employees Expensive parking that should really be included if you work in the area Sick time policy makes it so you use your vacation time for the first 3 days before it kicks in Cannot donate sick/time off to another employee without getting taxed for those hours on your paycheck Upper management keeps changing processes/SOP's and expects everyone to know new processes very well. Constant management and management style changes Some managers are very good and easy to work with, others are the complete opposite and people have migrated from the department as a result.
