    I have been working at Weber State University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Discount on student fees for employee and family.
    Beautiful campus and it is always growing.
    Constant improvements of office machines, programs and software.

    The lack of conformity on instructions for tasks is huge, so you have to work to find how to complete your tasks.
    University is still heavy with constant reminders of LDS world and culture.
    Colleges do not work with each other. Each college is its own separate island.
    Separation of staff and faculty is and adjustment.
