What do you like about working at University of Washington?

"It's in higher education and serves a purpose. Plus, educating students is awesome and being around smart people is great."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Get hired, take some free classes and get your Master's in ANYTHING - it's definitely skewing toward the more highly educated."

What don't you like about working at University of Washington?

"Between the bureaucracy and inability to make timely decisions is a no-wo/man's land of mismanagement and myopia. It's not that things are bad, per se, it's just no one can recognize it could be so much better."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Focus more on innovation, keeping education affordable for in-state students, centralize some of the decision-making process so it's smoother and less bureaucratic."

What do you like about working at University of Washington?

"Not much. It's a poor work culture unless you're administration or a coach! Even the faculty is treated badly. The only good thing about it is the medical coverage and pension and that isn't as good as King Co."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"The one thing I will say is that there are some departments on campus that do have a good work culture. Be sure to ask around before you jump on board. If you have any conflicts, you're on your own. Human Resources works for the administration."

What don't you like about working at University of Washington?

"Hate the hierarchical culture where everything is top down and you like it or lump it. Their attitude, in my opinion, is very archaic. Also find the uneven union representation problematic. Most classified employees haven't had even a cost of living increase in about 5 years and the union has no power to support classified staff. This is true of other union people on campus. Oh, and the salary above... after 18 years was still barely worth going to work for every day. Lousy pay."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Learn to treat your employees as equals and seek their input. You might be surprised at how it would improve the work atmosphere. Most of the employees (possibly even the custodial staff) have college degrees but are treated like sub-humans."
