    Pros

    Flexible hours, they work around your academic schedule. Great team the other employees in the department are a wonderful group of people. Wonderful students (for the most part).

    Cons

    The university limits graduate students to 25 hours of work a week. This job could easily be full time and still provide graduate students with the opportunity to work on their own material.

    Advice to Management

    Define clear goals for each student participating in the program. They should each come with a list of assignments to work on during their session.

  2. Fast-paced, highly innovative academic research institution

    Pros

    Good pay, but great benefits. Best retirement plan as an employee of the state of Colorado. Challenging, and yet interesting. Once people start here, they tend to stay for a very long time.

    Cons

    You tend to stagnate in the same role due to budget constraints, even though you generally will get pay raises every year, except when times are tough, such as during the recession. Sometimes there's crunch time, but generally overtime is not expected.

    Advice to Management

    Reviews come from the top down. There ought to be a way for employees to review managers as well.

    Pros

    Professionalism, Mutual Respect, Positive Learning atmosphere, leadership in Human Resources is positive

    Cons

    Some of the employees are struggling financially and need a higher wage to support their family.

    Advice to Management

    I think the counseling services could be helpful to staff and faculty - through individual counseling, family counseling, and particularly departmental in-service workshops. Otherwise, good job!

    Pros

    Great co workers, great staff morale, great PI's and researchers. time off policies, flexible work hours. I loved learning more and more about medical testing, behavior testing and all the fantastic things that these people do. I loved how the care techs and vet techs cared more about the health and safety of all of the animals more then the peoples research. If a mouse was super sick or something we did everything possible to help the mouse or whatever animal.

    Cons

    It was hard to euthanize mice.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the Awesome work Michelle!
