    I have been working at University of Connecticut

    Pros

    Good work-like balance and excellent training for students depending on what research group. Flexible schedules with classes for graduate students.

    Cons

    Tough at times with exams, end of the year reports, and general research at times. Pay is much lower than industry standard, but tuition reimbursement is a plus.

    Former Intern - Graphic Designer in Storrs, CT

    I worked at University of Connecticut as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity and guidance, great people. This is a good entry level environment, but you may not want to make a career of it. Plenty to learn if you are willing to go after it and take the initiative.

    Cons

    Limited to more of beginner positions, interns find it tough to get full work weeks, tough to make it up the ladder

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some chances on your younger team members

    Former Contractor - Analyst in East Hartford, CT

    I worked at University of Connecticut as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The autonomy to fail forward, but enough guidance and support when you need it to be an effective consultant for the company you are working for.

    Cons

    Expectations and deliverables were not always clear, and depended upon your ability to communicate effectively with the customer. Having clear expectations and goals is very important in the start-up or lower stages of a company.

    I have been working at University of Connecticut (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice atmosphere to work in (if you like country side). New initiatives to help graduate students with future career from grad school.

    Cons

    Terrible graduate insurance. Come, get your degree and get out. With current stipends and cost of living, there is barely any money one can save.

    No opinion of CEO
