    I have been working at University of Utah full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great variety of professors to work with.

    Cons

    Pay discrepancy between graduate students within the same department as much as 20%.
    Not much departmental support for labs that don't have much money.
    Same problem as every other graduate program - over worked, under paid, no retirement. I will be well into my 30's by the time I can start really saving money for retirement.

    Pros

    Boss was flexible because she was a working mom too and worked with my schedule.

    Cons

    Parking is a nightmare if you are not full time- if you are part time you have to park in student parking and it is always full when the work day starts. After circling the lot for what seemed like forever, and stalking them to their car, you can finally get a spot only to have to walk a good 10 minutes to my building. I finally found out I could park at the institute building where there were plenty of spots but still the far walk, which in the winter was miserable.

    Pros

    Love the culture and patient centered focus.

    Does not invest in employees below a manager level

    Advice to Management

    Train up your lower tier employees to be leaders. You focus way too much on the managers and Directors. Who is going to become the manager???
