University of Washington (UW) Reviews

What is it like working at University of Washington (UW)?

Free to Be Me.
Associate Professor, Postsecondary / Higher Education:
Pros: Flexible schedule, job security.
Cons: Weak, unimaginative leadership.
Senior Systems Administrator:
Very poorly managed. Limiting in skills because of silos. Not enough work for the number of people. Effort and hours required to work differ for team members depending on how well the manager likes them. Job postings say "generous benefits you. Don't have to be afraid to use", meanwhile getting spoken to by management about patterns of misuse of sick time. Not treated as a professional, or treated fairly. Time to move on.
I love the Challenges, Culture and Changes the company is making to improve the patient experience and standardization.
