    Current Employee - Faculty in Amherst Center, MA

    I have been working at University of Massachusetts full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Progressive management, diversity, unionized employees make for a worker-friendly environment. The surroundings are clean, safe, and urbane; nice place to raise a family.

    Cons

    Underfunded and undervalued by state; there seems to be money for new buildings but not for resources to support employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work more closely with the legislature to get necessary support, and honor faculty governance. Take more responsibility to raise funds; faculty and staff have enough on their plates already.
