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

    Pros

    I enjoy the work I do and have a great office environment. I love working with so many diverse populations of students. It is a very large university so there are countless opportunities for students, faculty and staff. Love the amenities of working in the city.

    Cons

    The university does not care about it's employees. Parking is a living nightmare. Because it is such a large institution, you do not receive recognition or credit for the work you do. Extra demands are often placed on staff without compensation for the extra work you've done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put as much effort into recognizing the contributions of the lower-level faculty and staff as those in higher level faculty and administrative positions to keep us motivated to want to work here.
