Most positive, although compensation is low and they waste government dollars.

Pros

It allows employees to pursue additional education and most managers are flexible with schedules to allow attending classes. The benefits package like insurance coverage and sick days and time off was generous.

Cons

The compensation is low compared to corporate positions and it is a government agency so you have to deal with the red tape and aspects of government work. Plus employees have to pay for parking which is a little ridiculous.

Advice to Management

I think a small change that would be nice is to give employees free parking and to increase the annual hours allowed in course work.

    Pros

    Good people to work with and strong VPs and President

    Cons

    With the budget cuts, my organization is 1 person deep in vital areas, impacting the ability for people to take relaxing vacations

    Advice to Management

    In order to compete with Denver companies, CU needs to ensure salaries are competitive and ensure proper work/life balance can be maintained.


  2. Beautiful place to work in Boulder, a bit too Bureaucratic though

    Pros

    Boulder is one of the most beautiful cities in America, plus working for a university keeps things fresh and exciting

    Cons

    I found a lot of policies to be extremely bureaucratic. I worked in athletics, and everything we did had to be sent up the chain of command.

    Advice to Management

    It would be in your best interest to hire people you trust, and instead of so much micro-managing, you could simply allow people to do their jobs... much more effiicient
