    Pros

    Great health benefits and retirement plans

    Cons

    Wages and corresponding responsibilities across the university are extremely inconsistent. Employees often have to wear many different hats and are not appropriately compensated for added responsibilities. The culture is also very formal--what else do you expect from a government agency? Not a lot of room to grow unless you switch departments and that can take months.

    Put cameras in the parking garages. Be more generous with annual raises.
