    Pros

    There are a lot of WONDERFUL things about working on a university campus. There is a lot of energy. You are able to play a role in students' lives.

    Cons

    There isn't a pay scale in place to ensure that you are compensated for what you actually do. Whatever pay you hire on with is generally where you will stay unless you are able to change departments and your position. If you enjoy your job, that is actually a bad thing because to get a pay increase you HAVE to change departments!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate those who actually work hard. There are people finishing degrees, playing on Facebook, and "hanging out" who make more than many who are working hard and can barely make ends meet. Pay people what they would get paid in private industry! As a university you pay less than what a first year teacher would make for someone with a masters is beyond comprehension.

    I have been working at University of Cincinnati

    Pros

    Free time to do homework and relax. It is a friendly environment to be in and everyone is nice. The work is easy and goes quick. The hours are good.

    Cons

    Gets very busy and overwhelming at times. Some of the tasks they make us do are worthless. Some of the students and parents that I come in contact with are very unpleasant at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use the talents of the students more and stop making them do worthless tasks. They need to make sure that all the workers share the work equally.

    Pros

    Steady paycheck, minimal responsibilities, stable hours.

    Cons

    No challenge, no growth opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Active recruitment would help you avoid deadbeat employees. Try the business college IT tracks rather than the IT group on your side of campus

    Pros

    The University of Cincinnati Libraries has competent, knowledgeable, friendly staff members most of whom are great managers and great teachers. I was never asked to do anything they themselves wouldn't do. Stress levels were low. Staff members carried their weight from top-to-bottom. Everyone was friendly.

    Cons

    Perhaps my only complaint could be that I could not get enough hours; however, beyond that, I would have loved to have worked here full-time, and still be working here.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, downtown to work on homework if you are a student. Other employees are fun to be around.

    Cons

    Management does not make good decisions, leaving you to take the heat from all the angry customers. Other than that, there are no cons.
