    Current Employee - Professional Exempt Staff in Boulder, CO
    Current Employee - Professional Exempt Staff in Boulder, CO

    I have been working at University of Colorado full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    In my position, there are a few great things:
    Flexibility in work hours/ work location (good directors have probably allowed for this)
    Great connection with coworkers- longstanding relationships and friendships
    Coworkers really support one another - there is a good team sense and support system within office (this is what keeps me at CU)
    Most prof exempt coworkers work hard - pull their weight
    Make lots of 'friends' within department due to nature of longevity for employees
    Have a lot of good clients, although some faculty need to let go of their egos
    Good vacation/sick leave/etc.
    Casual environment

    Cons

    Very undervalued, supported and appreciated by higher management (if didn't have office support- wouldn't be a great place to be as the office makes up for this) -leadership's favorite word is "no"

    Horrible pay - NO pay raises (even with consistent stellar reviews which allow for highest pay raise percentage - this is for professional exempt positions- don't know about faculty positions

    No opportunity for growth in current office - no where to move up to as we are not an academic dept

    State employees- don't work, but can't fire them, just have to wait until they retire
    Dept is too tied to the state system - need to separate from the state more

    Benefits have gone downhill and gotten more expensive over the last 10 years - have lost some benefits as the State has declared them "perks"

    Extremely bureaucratic, which makes doing your job well very frustrating - even when you have 'learned how to navigate the system'

    No buy-in for services rendered to the public as university system is too large and fragmented with each area having its own vested interests and direction

    Academic people 'running' a business - (which has proven itself to not be a good idea) -

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit having tunnel vision only for the 'numbers' and start working on raising morale within the department. Figure out how to provide better pay raises. Start supporting the 'beams' that are holding you up by appreciating your staff and listening to them. Practicing saying 'yes' - and making your actions more succinctly line up with your words.

    Positive Outlook
