I have been working at University of Virginia part-time (more than an year)

Pros

laid back atmosphere, friendly management, flexible hours

Cons

snobby customers, lower pay, lack of parking

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More perks and recognition for job well done would go a long way. Although universities are facing shrinking budgets a slight raise everyone now and then would also go a long.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Charlottesville, VA

    I worked at University of Virginia full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Once hired, never fired.
    Collegial
    Education benefit.

    Cons

    * Incentives for doing better are minimal -- the pay scale is banded and any raises or promotions you might get allow for only an incremental increase in money. So be warned: the salary at which you enter U.Va. will haunt you for the rest of your career at U.Va.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less meetings and bureaucracy would be nice but unrealistic since this is a state institution
