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

    Pros

    Diverse, urban, tolerant in a very conservative city. An oasis in the middle of the city in this regard.

     Tuition remission, ability to take courses and advance knowledge and earn degree. People are friendly and the campus has a close knit feel even though it is a large, urban, research university. Current President Ono is hands on and student centered, raising the profile of UC. Retirement benefits are very solid. President Ono refused his own raise this year, allocating it to other programs at UC. Classy.

    Cons

    Pay is low, but if you are earning a degree yourself, or sending a child to UC, it could be very worthwhile. Work environment is good, somewhat offsets the low pay, which for those who have Masters degrees, or even Bachelors degrees, really it is shameful. Turnover in some departments seems high, and this is most likely the factor. some shameful salaries even for education.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees, salary and professional development.
