I worked at University of Colorado Denver full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

CU does a great job of aligning business operations policy and procedure. Made it very easy and clear what was expected and how to work within the system.

Cons

Getting in and out of downtown Denver, especially in bad weather. The cost of parking. The main campus in Boulder thinks they're better, which is ridiculous - it's the same institution.

    Current Intern - Research Assistant in Aurora, CO

    I have been working at University of Colorado Denver as an intern (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The campus is very large and expanding constantly. This means there are a lot of labs on campus promoting collaboration. Researchers have access to the University of Colorado Hospital and Children's Hospital - providing a lot of clinical support to research. Getting to campus is easy and traffic isn't too bad, usually. Facilities are new and clean; support staff is great.

    Cons

    Campus is in Aurora and the area isn't the best. Parking is expensive and you don't really have a chance to opt out since there is no close off-campus parking. "Big name" PIs and certain departments hoard lab space and leave them empty while smaller labs are packed into single bays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This depends on your department, PI, lab manager etc... Some labs are great while others are sweat shops.

    Former Employee - Lab Monitor/IT Administrative in Denver, CO
    Former Employee - Lab Monitor/IT Administrative in Denver, CO

    I worked at University of Colorado Denver part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers were helpful to one another, atmosphere was relaxed and not too stressful. Manager of my particular dept. was excellent and knew exactly what needed to be done.

    Cons

    Certain faculty/professor expectations of IT dept. was somewhat high and unrealistic at times. Would ask things of work/study students like tech support and troubleshooting at inappropriate times (i.e. during class hours and not during staffed hours).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IT director was knowledgeable and was easy to work with.
