Working at KU has been very beneficial. A typical work day involves troubleshooting complex issues, checking on the health of network devices as well as other duties.
Meetings are common at KU, usually associated with projects that have been assigned.
Workplace culture is fairly casual. As long as you are getting your work done as well as taking time for professional development, people are trusted to do their job, at least in my department.
The most enjoyable part of the job is my team, they are a great group of folks. The hardest part is the constant worry about budget constraints and worrying if you are going to be given even less to work with and expected to still protect the university and it's brand.
