    I have been working at University of Louisville full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Casual work environment.

    Cons

    Office politics is alive and well on Health Sciences Campus. Employees have no say when some employees receive favored treatment by manager. Low salary increases if increases are given at all. Very few opportunities to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Some managers need to realize employees are your most valuable asset and treat them accordingly. Reward employees who work hard and do a good job, not just those who are your 'friends' or lunch buddies.

    I have been working at University of Louisville full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The healthcare is great along with the added benefits such as the retirement. There is a lot of personal, sick and vacation time offered.

    Cons

    Reputation and image is a huge problem at the University. C-suite leadership has left the organization in horrible shape.

    Advice to Management

    Pay higher wages and take advice from you subordinates. There needs to be needs assessments conducted and management needs to be reviewed by lower lever workers

    Pros

    The university is not without its challenges, but the people that I work with are terrific coworkers and colleagues. There are no shortage of positive stories to tell, either.

    Cons

    However, budget concerns currently prevent the university and its employees from communicating its positive stories to the extent required to offset the negative press.

    Advice to Management

    Take your time to find the right person to succeed James Ramsey. In the meantime, know that the university is in good hands.

    I worked at University of Louisville full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    In hindsight, all of the years I spent there as both a student and as a full time IT senior staff member were ultimately a complete waste of time and money. Cronyism and the Peter Principle are in full force at that place.

    Advice to Management

    Look in the mirror and resolve to behave as decent human beings so that the degrees earned by students actually mean something.
