    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at University of Cincinnati part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    There 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 Management

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

    Pros

    Networking. Educational experience. Self-driven work environment.

    Cons

    Where 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.

    I worked at University of Cincinnati full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    There 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.
