Not a good work environment. No regard for qualifications and allowances for extra study. As an hourly employee, there is no recourse to outside mentorship or visibility.

Hostile work environment, poorly funded department, abusive management.
IT Security Analyst (Current Employee), Georgetown DCJune 6, 2015
Cons: constant concern about layoff
The University told me upon being hired that they would send me to training. This turned out to be an untruth. Middle management is unprofessional and hostile. Turn over is high and more then 1/2 department was laid off within the last 5 months.

I've loved working at Georgetown
IT Architect (Current Employee), Washington, DCMay 27, 2015
But it's time to go for family reasons. The work environment is casual, but there are always a certain amount of internal politics in higher education. I've had two CIOs since I've been here, both radically different from each other, and now they're looking for another, so things will change again.

Most managers are top flight. Workday is enjoyable, work challenging and interesting.

Graduate Research/Research Assistant (Former Employee), Washington, DCMay 18, 2015
Pros: Free Pizza at every seminars
Cons: Lack of fundding
This is a scientific environment. Laziness is not an option. Providing tangible results is greatly appreciate as it contributes to the overall advancement of scientific knowledge.

The staffs are serious-minded, joyous and sociable.

The hardest part of the job is the job itself which is inevitable. Scientific outcomes are unpredictable so we would rather focus of the input most times. It allows for growth and aids quick learning of tough procedures.

Brick wall
Fleet Mechanic (Former Employee), Washington, DCDecember 10, 2014
Pros: holiday time off
Cons: management, advancement, fees
My career there started out great. Then the supervisor got disgruntled and made life miserable. Constantly brought home issues to work. Very un-organized work place, no direction, no communication, no advancement, multiple fees HAD to be paid. Every time you got a raise, all fees such as parking increased. Over a six year period your check never moved but you paid more taxes and fees.
