Pros

New medical campus, access to high level of technology and research, great new library.
The pay is usually appropriate and promotions are timely.
Majority of the people are very friendly with strong bend towards outdoors.

Cons

Located in a bleak suburb of Denver with little decent housing or schools in the area.
Still looks like a huge construction site.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Decent amount of opportunities to find professors with funding. Lots of smart people to help you out. Cool town to live in.

    Cons

    Unfair and inconsistent treatment of graduate students. Long hours required. Nobody has a life. Expectations are unreasonable and generally inconsistent.

    Great place if you keep your head down and opinions to yourself, not so good if you want advancement.

    Former Employee - IT Management in Boulder, CO

    I worked at University of Colorado

    Pros

    Great access to new technology; very intelligent co-workers; beautiful location; good benefits, though health insurance is expensive; at lower levels, good opportunity to change departments but the higher you go, the more limited you get. If you are a techie, then the only way to be promoted is to go into management.

    Cons

    Deeply entrenched "old boys club"; it's not what you know that gets you ahead, it's who you know and whether you are willing to play along; speaking your mind will brand you as someone not to be trusted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really, truly listen to your employees and thoughtfully evaluate their ideas and suggestions. Don't try to do everything at once - all you'll get is poor quality and bad morale.
