The pay for the job title I have is good, but the problem is the title isn't a great representation of what the job entitles. So in reality, the pay isn't the greastest for what I actually do.
The work I'm involved is important to the security of the university, but we are not treated as such. In my department, it can be a very demanding, stressful environment with not a whole lot of reward and little help in improving the environment. Raises have been very small for everyone at the university, with the highest possible raise allowed being 2% in 2014 and 1% in 2015.
Other benefits such as medical, dental, legal, free education, etc are probably the best part of the time here at Case.
Yes, Case Western has great reputation for being an outstanding university and it is. The education that is provided here is excellent and I wouldn't tell anyone any different. But based on my experiences, if you're not a student, faculty, in a higher position or in a position with an "important" role (ex. researcher), then you're not seen as not important and can be treated as such. Not everyone above you treats you that way (including my manager), but it seems to be the rule vs the exception.
I'm looking at this position as a stepping stone in my career and I don't plan on staying at Case long term, but I am thankful for the experience it gave me.
Decent pay, good benefits
Work environment, tiny raises, little reward
