    I worked at University of Arkansas at Little Rock full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    None. I received a salary with benefits. But that's the bare minimum you should be getting from a job.

    Cons

    Salary far below market value. Completely impersonal faculty relationships and very little upper administrative interest/interaction. Students are far below the quality that should be allowed in a four-year university. Grade inflation is rampant. Support staff is inept, from the HR department that has no idea what it's doing to the Facilities staff, who don't think it's their job to do ANYTHING within their job description. Parking is a major problem on campus. The campus location is in a high-crime, low-income part of the city - a student was kidnapped and murdered from across the street several years ago. The campus is ugly and laid out with no logic - most of the buildings look like they were used for prisoner torture in the Soviet Union during the Cold War.

    I have been working at University of Arkansas at Little Rock full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Gain experience doing lots of different tasks.
    Work to train future generations of leaders.
    Good entertainment, retirement and health benefits.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for upward mobility. This makes the institution a place that feels more like a stepping stone than a place to build a successful career.
    Lack of access to well trained support staff.
    Resources are spread very thin which can make it hard to invest in necessary human and physical infrastructure improvements.
    Institutional relationship is not strong with the local city government or business sector.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on doing fewer things and do those things well. Form partnerships with other educational institutions in the city to strengthen networks and matriculations pathways. Invest in quality professional development for support staff to improve professionalism of employees. Address salary inequities.

    I have been working at University of Arkansas at Little Rock as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    I am working as a graduate assistant. People here are very open and friendly staff. I work 20 hours. My work is to take care of the data entry tasks, and analyze the database for any errors. I also do some seminar manual paper work. My tasks are given early enough so that I can manage my studies and work.

    Less chances of getting a high-end practical experience in my chosen field.
