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

    Pros

    People try to do their best here, even with the noted cons below.

    Cons

    The salary matrix for staff is from 2008. (You can find this information on the web page -- type in salary matrix --look at the date.)
    Many staff are at 77% of comparable institutions with regard to pay. (See recent Board of Trustees presentations.)
    We used to have long-term disability paid for. Now, we have to pay for it out of pocket.
    In actual real take home pay, my wages have gone down over the past three years.

    Do you want to work here?

    I have been working at University of Wyoming full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wyoming is as cold and windy as you've heard, but UWyo is an inviting and engaging place to work.
    *helpful, friendly people
    *beautiful campus
    *small town, Western feel
    *good benefits for staff
    *nice gym, even for non-students
    *helpful, responsive IT department
    *coffee, banking, other amenities right on campus

    Cons

    *cold, windy, icy in the winter
    *battling students to find parking if you don't want to buy a parking permit
    *lack of centralization, so you have to find the right person to help you
    *state legislation bungling the budget, so university has been making steep cuts

    Advice to Management

    Individual faculty labs can be kingdoms unto themselves. The upper management of the university seem fine, I mostly interact with my immediate faculty supervisor.
