    I worked at University of Cincinnati as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The program was well put together and the graduate students you work with are knowledgeable. The working hours were very flexible.

    Cons

    The pay was not the best for the time commitment. Spending all day in a lab during the summer is not the best either.

    I have been working at University of Cincinnati full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Exciting university. A top research institute with impressive ambitions and achievements. Largest employer in Cincinnati and a wide variety of colleges and students. Also a beautiful urban campus.

    Cons

    Work is continually heaped upon existing staff as responsibilities increase and departing employees are not replaced. Everyone tells everyone else how to run their jobs. Quantity is more important than quality. Pay is a tad low considering that the university is a public nonprofit funded by the state government. Budget cuts occur annually. The workload is frantic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the employees who are doing outstanding jobs. Do not sacrifice quality for quantity because it will only be detrimental to the university in the end. Realize that supervisors are often the biggest hindrance to better performance and to team-player dynamics.
