I have been working at UMass Lowell full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Solid state benefits package with generous time-off policies. Very fair compensation that compares well to private sector salaries. Tremendous amount of new and refurbished buildings across campus and lots of new employees joining the campus.

Cons

Lots of new faces = less of a family feel to it. This used to be a place where you knew just about everyone, now with all the hiring (and firing) there is a lack of employee comradeship.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember the staff. We know faculty and students are important, but so too are the people who keep the place running.

    I worked at UMass Lowell part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I got opportunity to work after 2 rounds of interview. They provided required training, were very friendly, gave gifts as compliments during Christmas time.

    Cons

    Like every company even it has cons. The management was tough on work. No excuses even the cases are extreme, had tough to adapt things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand employees need.
