    I have been working at University of Cincinnati full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good expirience gained in vasts areas as you are given a lot of work to do but only the chosen few gain recognition.

    Cons

    Very political, hard to advance regardless of how hard you work. You can work day and night. Management will focus on any small detail and never recognize your hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to recognize the individuals who actually do the hard work and not just the cover faces of the departments who are usually just taking the credit for the hard work of others.

    I worked at University of Cincinnati part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Able to contribute towards others success.

    Cons

    Extremely low pay especially to graduate tutors .... pay is the same irrespective of academic level and experience (imagine for example - a sophomore who just joined as tutor and a graduate tutor with 3 or more years of experience both getting the exact same pay)....to add to this misery the staff does not care about your day to day efforts and the difficulty and value of the subjects that you are able to tutor.... just makes you wonder if you are really in an academic institution

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lay emphasis on academics and encourage on improving teaching skills instead of promoting petty politics and hatred.

    For a school with management classes, UC does anything but support good management practice

    I have been working at University of Cincinnati

    Pros

    Tuition remission and a diverse crowd are about the only pros I can think of working in the department I do.

    Cons

    Working in my department has been the worst job experience I have had or have even heard of. My direct supervisor has proven to be spineless, incompetent, and capable of lying. His supervisor is tyrannical, dishonest, can't admit mistakes, and believes that she is the be all, know all of everything every where. Management constantly tries to "tighten the screws" on the staff, a staff who's work has repeatedly, during state inspections, been giving glowing reviews, and has been noted by a VP that there have never been any complaints made on my department while out in the field. Manaegment has had several grievances filed on them just in the last few months by a relatively small staff of about 12, and management continues to challenge Unions and university policy to negatively effect working conditions and to try and take away the compensation provide by union contracts. When problems continued, I was advised to "Look for a new job, if its that bad" by the VP of research instead of being offered a solution. Management has zero accountability within my department, and no one ranked above shows any signs of concern. At one point, it was rumored that 3 staff members were going to potentially go on a killing spree and management did nothing to follow this up nor show concern of this notion. The excuse was that the "rumor" could not be substantiated. None of the workers were worried, but that is how management handles things, by not handling them and then making up excuses or out right lies to cover themselves. Another incident, was during a holiday party where the top supervisor in my department said that "they stopped playing a certain game because the foreigners didn't understand"....not a big deal, but with 2 international employees sitting in the room, it seemed rather crass, rude, and discriminatory coming from a supervisor making $123,000 a year and working for a university that boasts diversity and equal oppurtunity. The list goes on. Supervisors approve time off work only to take it back because they made a mistake. Supervisors deny time off and refuse to approve it unless intimate details are provided surrounding the need for time off. The most the university has done was require that the supervisors go to training, one in which the top supervisor was the trainer. How on earth can someone who is the cause of the problem, be able to solve the problem. Tyranny, incompetence, and dusting things under the rug has been the university's solution to handling the intense problems my department has been struggling to right. The university does not follow the mission statement they put out there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, trust them, give them the benefit of the doubt. Don't lie, they aren't stupid. Proving your incompetence and then lying about things to cover it is never a good solution. Creating fear, and unwillingness to talk to the supervisors because illogical policies and procedures result is also not helpful. Also, support from higher management needs to be effective and receptive, instead of insufficient and completely ineffective. Since the staff has been trying for improvement, management and policies have gotten worse, and the Supervisor is vindictive and retaliatory not to mention unreceptive and lacks all effective communication skills.. Something needs to be done.
