I worked at University of Vermont part-time for more than a year

Pros

Beautiful and unique location. Good benefits package. The university is one of the most green in the country. Good students and staff to collaborate with.

Cons

Overcrowded city with no parking, terrible weather, and limited opportunities elsewhere. Low salary for level of education, and high living costs.

    Though staff salaries have been stagnant, you otherwise find a high degree of respect from management.

    Pros

    Respect from my supervisor and a high degree of autonomy are among the best reasons to work here. The campus environment is one of high student activism, and I like that, too.

    Cons

    Salaries haven't changed for staff for nearly a decade. Meanwhile, faculty and top administrators continue to get great raises. Good for them, bad for us. There are actually two staff union movements going on campus right now. Though I've never really cared about union activity before, I'm hoping that one of the movements gets made official so that we can bargain for higher wages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're going to preach social justice, then live it yourselves. If you're going to ask staff members' opinions, then please listen rather than just check off that box stating "Asked staff what they thought." We can tell when you're just blowing us off, and it makes for a less-happy workforce.
