Pros

Great place to work, good benefits, and friendly co-workers are the best reasons to work here. They also allow you to take 2 free classes per semester if you are working full-time.

Cons

Lots of paperwork and long processing times for every interaction with HR or the business office makes things that should be simple a lot more complicated and time consuming.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

In certain areas of Penn, especially the animal facilities, there is a lot of nepotism within the management. It engenders bad will with the rest of the staff.

    Pros

    Great tuition benefits. Staff can take classes for free as soon as they start work.
    Easy hours -- Could just be my department, but hours are generally very flexible and allow for you to take care of other things that go on in life.

    Cons

    Low pay is my only con. I also feel like there are not many opportunities for staff to get together, but this may just be a function of the fact that there are numerous departments here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More competitive salaries for entry level workers would boost morale, and help take care of loans that recent college graduates have amassed.
