    I have been working at University of Cincinnati as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours and dress code; great hands on experience. My co-workers are great people that really care about each other. We host monthly pot-lucks for the dept.

    Cons

    So much red tape! It takes forever to get anything approved. As an hourly employee, I am still expected to "take the job home" and monitor social media off the clock.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust that the people you hired know what they are doing. It can be frustrating when senior management, who knows nothing a topic, tries to mircomanage a project.

    The benefits are great, but pay no attention to the job description 'cause that's not what you will be doing.

    I have been working at University of Cincinnati full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are great, especially if you or a family member want free tuition.

    Cons

    Job descriptions are vague and positions and departments get changed without input from employees and no regard is given to what you were hired to do or your skill set...take it or leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more honest about the jobs description. Respect employees. You will get more out of an employee who feels acknowledged and appreciated.

    I have been working at University of Cincinnati full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Diverse, urban, tolerant in a very conservative city. An oasis in the middle of the city in this regard.

     Tuition remission, ability to take courses and advance knowledge and earn degree. People are friendly and the campus has a close knit feel even though it is a large, urban, research university. Current President Ono is hands on and student centered, raising the profile of UC. Retirement benefits are very solid. President Ono refused his own raise this year, allocating it to other programs at UC. Classy.

    Cons

    Pay is low, but if you are earning a degree yourself, or sending a child to UC, it could be very worthwhile. Work environment is good, somewhat offsets the low pay, which for those who have Masters degrees, or even Bachelors degrees, really it is shameful. Turnover in some departments seems high, and this is most likely the factor. some shameful salaries even for education.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees, salary and professional development.
