Former Employee - Research Specialist B in Philadelphia, PA

I worked at University of Pennsylvania full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Healthcare, up to 5% matching retirement contributions, tuition reimbursement, tuition assistance for your children when they go to college. Research facilities at the School of Medicine are state of the art and enjoyable to work in.

Cons

Low salaries, but that is endemic to academia in general. Convoluted HR process for getting raises/promotions.

    Current Employee - Personal Trainer in Philadelphia, PA
    Current Employee - Personal Trainer in Philadelphia, PA

    I have been working at University of Pennsylvania part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    No need to meet difficult or high-pressure sales quotas. Flexible schedule (provided the clients' schedules are flexible as well). Free membership to a very good fitness facility.

    Cons

    Work and income is dependent on client availability. Students have a poor long-term retention rate as clients due to graduations/transfers. No benefits offered as a part-time employee, and full-time positions do not exist for personal trainers.
