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

Professional Research Assistant (Former Employee)
Denver, CO

I worked at University of Colorado

ProsIt 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.

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