CU is a fairly neutral place to work

Pros

Medical and dental benefits are decent here. My experience has been in the research labs where some areas receive good support, some areas do not.

Cons

For some of the academic positions, there is no reasonable way to contribute to a retirement plan and have the University match that at any level. This is not true at all universities so it is worth considering.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It would be useful if management generally had more contact with the individuals who work for them. We are interested and interesting people who want to contribute and help to create value in our research and studies.

    It was a creative position within a very structured environment and guided by institutional guidlines.

    Pros

    Being able to contribute more modern, updated, valuable and creative changes in the messaging and branding throughout multiple channels.

    Cons

    The "company" was very slow to adapt and apply new changes/ideas - very bureaucratic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Digital screens within office showing the real time flow of the statistics and analytics of "client" interaction and projects in process, as well as victories and completed projects.

  2.

    Pros

    Working at CU-Boulder, there were great benefits, good contributions to retirement funds, friendly coworkers, world class campus.

    Cons

    The biggest problem was the bureaucracy of work. To get stuff done, there would sometimes be needless red tape, something that would not be there in smaller companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline redtape
