Poor management and toxic culture
Research Engineer 3 (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAJune 25, 2017
Worked for College of Engineering. Management is clueless in how to deal with people but not unexpected as they have no management training other than ordering grad students to do what they say. No reason to make suggestions to improve processes as you know nothing because you are intellectually so far beneath them. Experience means nothing in comparison to a degree. Engineering HR manager ignores problems unless they will cause legal issues for the university. Coworkers are miserable and difficult to be around. Backstabbing and lying is pervasive. Career advancement is non-existent. The few good people left for better jobs so it's now just the incompetent and chair warmers building up their 401k. Pay is well below market rate and makes it difficult to live in the area. Avoid working with them unless you are totally desperate. The deans really don't care so don't expect anything to ever change.
Pros
good 401k match
Cons
toxic culture, miserable coworkers, clueless management

okay place to work
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAJune 17, 2017
As an adjunct, compensation is not great as you ended up spending lots and lots of extra hours outside of actual teaching hours. Students in the evening classes I taught were mediocre. It was disappointing that some of the graduate students couldn't write a paper with correct grammar. I questioned admission criteria and policy to the management and was not taken very seriously.
Pros
Beautiful campus; convenient location
Cons
quality of some students, lack of support from the managers

Athletic administration is phenomenal and leads with class and integrity. Beautiful surroundings and ample resources. There are major issues with personnel within certain departments but the overall campus climate and culture is incredible. Supportive and aggressive, those in leadership there have earned their success.

Research Study Assistant (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAMay 29, 2017
Culture is poor. Typical office job. As an entry-level employee, it seems that there is not a lot of room for advancement or career progression. I believe this may have been a department issue rather than a university issue.

Excellent job to have while a student through the university. Great work environment, especially if you are one who enjoys engaging with people. A normal day is to set up tables and chairs for different events and also monitor different equipment that is checked out by the students.
