I have been working at Iowa State University

Pros

Lots of pride in working for a great institution. Benefits have remained solid even through tough economic/budgetary times.

Cons

Career development and advancement opportunities for staff members are lacking.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The university is too polite in the way it positions itself. It's probably just the Midwestern humility but we need to assert ourselves more in the marketplace. We're better than what we let on.

    Nice place to work, but regular state budget cuts are severely affecting competitiveness with industrial jobs.

    I have been working at Iowa State University

    Pros

    Great tuition reimbursement program, excellent number of vacation days, great location and beautiful campus. There are many excellent people to work with, and there are almost always events or activities going on.

    Cons

    Repeated drops in Iowa tax dollar funding levels have cut ISU budgets, resulted in diminished benefits, furlough days, and three years (and counting) of zero percent raises. I am currently concerned that budget cuts will leave me without a job.
