Suggestions for improvement

  • Bottom line, pay more. If that means paying the President and professors less, then do it. UW is a great place to work, but they lose so much talent to the tech companies who can pay what it takes to live in this city. I'm 43, I shouldn't have to have a roommate to live in Seattle.

What I like about the company

Very supportive and caring when my mother passed.

What I dislike about the company

They simply don't pay enough to compete with Amazon down the street.
