Former Employee - Facilities Management in Minneapolis, MN
Former Employee - Facilities Management in Minneapolis, MN

I worked at University of Minnesota full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great pay and benefits, lots of vacation time. Also, there is a lot of workplace pride at the U.

Cons

There is always a lot of pressure to downsize departments and cut costs. There is also a culture that is status-conscious based on one's place in the hierarchy of the U staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in your employees and set them up for success and you will have an even better workplace ecosystem.
