Pros: decent amount of vacation, personal time, sick days and it is easy to get time off when you need it.
Cons: parking, salaries, raises.
The salaries are pretty low unless you are exempt. Raises are hardly ever given and are not merit based. The last raises given were in 2011 and they were only 2%. If you are an exempt employee expect to work well over 40 hours a week. The parking is very, very, expensive if your are staff or faculty, the lowest rate is $40 a month if you make under – more... 35k a year. It goes up from there. Parking used to go up $2 every year. So expect that $40 to go up as time goes by. Advancement is difficult. Management is different in different departments, some good, some bad. Many positions require masters degrees and pay in the mid 30k which seems low for a masters. Often asked to handle very difficult student issues when managers should handle them, only given a thank you. Thank yous are not worth much when you hear them so often. – less
