    I have been working at Emory University full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The pros of working in higher education, and specifically at Emory are the flexible schedule, the fact that you get national holidays off and internal candidates are given preference for most positions. Also the University provides a lot of alternative commuting options to faculty and staff and overall it is a progressive place to work for.

    Cons

    Raises, specifically for staff, are not based on performance evaluations but on you initial salary - even if you transfer to a new department they will offer you a increase based on a formula. In that same vain, most departments are pretty flat, so if you want to advance you will more than likely need to leave your department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to extend some of the same benefits to staff as you do faculty.
