Difficult to keep up with values

Resident Advisor (Current Employee)
Cincinnati, OH

I have been working at University of Cincinnati part-time for more than a year

ProsYou meet many people and develop positive, long-lasting connections. The residents I've mentored are bright, intelligent students with amazing goals.

ConsThere is an unattainable ideal that is held within the department that forces employees to think a certain way. Much of the department is condescending and extremely clique-y. It has been difficult to manage professional relationships with particular members.

Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand where resident advisors are coming from - we try hard every day but have our private lives to deal with, too.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

No one cares about you and your success but you.

Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee)
Cincinnati, OH

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

ProsNetworking. Educational experience. Self-driven work environment.

ConsWhere do I even begin? Bureaucracy. Unreasonable individuals. Extremely poor professional career development. Salaries were not competitive (too low considering the cost of living). Health insurance provided but no vision or dental.

The job has one of the most incompetent staffs of all time.

Telerecruiter (Former Employee)
Cincinnati, OH

I worked at University of Cincinnati full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThe job is super simple to do anyone can do it.

ConsThe management staff is one short of a dozen. There are too many chiefs and not nearly enough Indians.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere is no one message between anyone in management. Everyone from manager to supervisors are not on the same page. This is one place where common sense is not applied. Think about how to help staff make goals instead punishing staff for ideas that you made that where bound to fail. Lastly, fella's! Please! Please! Please! Let the staff help you with ideas, what management comes up with barely makes the grade.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Variable Experience Depending on Who You Work For

Research Associate (Current Employee)
Cincinnati, OH

I have been working at University of Cincinnati full-time for less than a year

ProsExcellent benefits! Departmental business managers were excellent and helpful. Be sure to go to them if you have problems with your PI!

ConsMost of the PIs are academics and don't have much management experience. Not uncommon for workers to work over 40 hours per week without extra pay because they are paid based on salary.

Advice to Senior ManagementBecome more involved to see what's really going on in the lab to find out if the treatment of employees is appropriate.

Nice people, nice environment, but horrible administrators

Network Administrator (Former Employee)
Cincinnati, OH

I worked at University of Cincinnati part-time for more than a year

ProsUC is a beautiful campus, even though the administration is filling it up with new buildings! Lot of middle management people are very nice.

ConsAdministration has got their priorities mixed up. With their sole purpose of increased profit (or revenue), everything else that makes (& made) UC a great place is slowly (may be quickly) diminishing. Some of the dept. level administrators (i.e.Professors) are also arrogant &/or egotistical, which makes it harder to work with them. The top-level non-academic administrators are even worse. They are lazy & takes ages to get anything done (worse than state workers) and on top of that they delay everything with unnecessary red-tape. I could go on, but, that sums it up. Love the place, but, unless something change, UC is in the wrong path!

Advice to Senior ManagementGet your priorities right!

Management run amok

Radiation Safety (Current Employee)
Cincinnati, OH

I have been working at University of Cincinnati

ProsFree Tuition to employees so you can get an education and get out.

ConsEach department run like a private fiefdom with employees getting no respect nor any support when seek help with management issue outside the department. Management is unsupportive and combative.

Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management should take an interest in employees. When complaints are made about management there should be followup from senior management. When the staff are treated as they are here the quality and quantity of the work suffer.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Lots of growth potentioal for University.

IT Analyst (Current Employee)
Cincinnati, OH

I have been working at University of Cincinnati

ProsWork independent and you are empowered to find solutions on your own.

ConsToo many empires being protected by Director Level Management. Creates tension in overall organization. Should be more of a team work atmosphere, instead it's people protecting their territory.

Advice to Senior ManagementBreak down the walls between the different IT pillars. Have the different IT groups communicate more and have them adopt a project plan that includes corss lines communication and integration.
