    I have been working at University of Rochester full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits including healthcare and tuition. Atmosphere is pretty laid back which is a gift and a curse.

    Cons

    Not as structured as I would like. I strive off of structure, process, and procedure. Sometimes it can feel like the wild wild west which works for some but not so well for others. Compensation seems to be on the lower end of the spectrum.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved

    Everyone is passionate about what they do and the University is continuing to develop as the higher education ecology adapts.
