    Pros

    Great place to work, the department provides all the support needed. It is always nice to work for the University of Arizona

    Cons

    parking is a little bit expensive, also bikes get stolen all the time. Other than that, I never had a problem in UofA

    Advice to Management

    There is not much to say, all depends on which department are you in. In my case the management of the department is great and all the staff is very kind.

    Pros

    This was the first job I ever had where I felt happy to wake up and go to work each day. The people I worked with were very nice and professional. I cannot say enough nice things about my supervisor and the professor I directly assisted. It was nice to walk around the campus and see all the young students filled with hopes and dreams about the future. It was just a nice environment overall. We were given good benefits too.

    Cons

    Having to pay for our own parking as employees was just ridiculous to me. It was very expensive and very difficult to find parking close to where I worked, especially since it seemed as if they were giving priority to the frat/sorority kids.

    Advice to Management

    I really do not have any advice for management. They treated me and my co-workers very fairly and I think they did an excellent job.

    Pros

    Great, inexpensive benefits. Work-life balance. Separate vacation and sick time accrual banks.

    Cons

    Mandatory contribution to Az state retirement system, although I'll be grateful for it later.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to dismiss low-performing employees. Encourage long-time employees to participate in career/skill development opportunities around campus.

  11. As a student this is a great place to work. They are extremely flexible and convenient.
