    I have been working at University of Cincinnati full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Exposure to new learning opportunities, benefits - vacation and sick are great. Training is extensive, on average it can take up to six months for training to be complete. Always an opportunity to learn something new everyday

    Cons

    Health Insurance currently is awful, UC advertises they are pro-research however they do not support all research. A lot of walking around campus - can be a pro or a con depending on the weather.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raises need to be on a schedule: based on education, merit and experience
