    I worked at University of Washington full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The UW offers its graduate student employees (research and teaching assistants + fellows) a great package that has been bargained by a strong union. The advantages are numerous including access to gym, public transport, daycare, good health insurance, etc.

    Cons

    Large organization, sometimes paperwork becomes difficult, and large programmatic changes in payroll have sometimes caused serious delays in some students getting paid.

    Advice to Management

    Continuing to recruit diverse faculties and graduate students should remain an important goal as there are still too many white males.
