    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.

    Pros

    Tuition remission is great. The are great opportunities to take a class or obtain a degree if you so choose while working. Ample vacation time and separate sick time.

    Cons

    Salaries may not be as high as private companies. Some positions are tied to research grants, so when grant money runs out sometimes so do your job.

    I have been working at University of Cincinnati part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with the freshmen, and very flexible hours. Developed a great network of both peer workers and underclassmen.

    Cons

    Not a high paying job, also sometimes the students can be a pain in the neck. Also it is a little intimidating to start taking care of a group of freshmen

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None really, maybe give more opportunities to work with higher ups, or collaborate with other learning communities. I think it'd be awesome to collaborate more with some of my peers.

    UC is a cool place to work. Not very innovative. But cool.

    Current Employee - Student Life in Cincinnati, OH

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

    Pros

    People are very friendly. Supervisors don't micromanage you. In certain functions - like admissions - you can make your own schedule. If you love sports, being able to attend games is a plus. People tend to stay for a long time (20+ years) because it can be comfortable; this is a gift and a curse.

    Cons

    Not very innovative with technology or design. It can take a long time for solutions to be approved because it's such a large university system (45,000 + students). The pay is not that great so you better find some purpose in your job to keep you motivated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep following the leadership of Prez. Ono. He is very inspiring and a model for how executives should treat their people.
