    I worked at University of Wisconsin - Extension full-time

    Pros

    Wonderful colleagues and work responsibilities is not hard. It tends to be laid back.

    Cons

    Upper management dishes blames to lower level employee when they too have no idea what is going on. This creates low morale and eventual toxicity. Constant reprimands when it was through no fault of one's dedication to the job.

    Advice to Management

    Don't manage your staff if you don't know the inside out of the scope of work for the person you supervise. If that cannot be done because it is your job to supervise, you too did not ask for it ... don't throw them under the bus.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, love the mission

    Cons

    Does not stay true to mission. More concerned about using academic rigor and outdated curriculum because it has been evaluated than the quality of instruction and actual impact on the community. Not responsive to community needs-no flexibility. The bureaucracy is mind-boggling. There are also some serious pay equity/fairness issues across classifications of employees.
