    I have been working at University of Colorado full-time

    Pros

    The people at the University really love what they do. They are passionate about their work. Four weeks of vacation and three of sick leave each year is also a major bonus!

    Cons

    Parts of the organization can be very flat so upward mobility in certain areas isn't always straightforward.

    I have been working at University of Colorado full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Benefits. The university triples what you put into your 401a. (You put in $1, the put in $2). The health benefits are great. It's generally an interesting job.

    Cons

    Starting Salaries are very low especially for jobs required college education. Yearly raises are 1-3%. Salary raises are extremely difficult to obtain. Being a lab, weekends are expected more often than not.

    Advice to Management

    Pay competitive salary to stop the massive overturn.
