    Pros

    Very flexible with school schedule.
    Employees are very nice.
    Pay is average to above average for part time.

    Cons

    Employers unorganized about what needs to get done sometimes.
    Don't expect to keep your job after you graduate.
    If you are not a manger or work for administration do not expect to be heard if you have ideas for change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is key!

    The Campus Recreation Center can be a difficult place to work with the unorganized management.

    Pros

    The view from the building is very pretty. You get to meet many people and be involved in a lively atmosphere.

    The management is often unprofessional, lack communication skills, and micro-manage. There is not enough space for all the activities.

    The management needs to develop more organization and understand the needs of students.

    The best reason to work here is the environment. Good job for those without much experience in the work place.

    Some of the challenges is that you may need to learn many computer related problems and solutions that commonly happen.

    Excellent education by people who care about whether you learn, not just if you get good grades.

    I worked at University of Colorado Colorado Springs part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Involved professors who always have time for students, expanding facilities to meet growing student population, still small enough to feel like you aren't lost in the system.

    Cons

    Limited parking - number one complaint from faculty, staff and students doesn't seem to be much of a priority while students/ classroom capacity is expanding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be very careful you don't fall into "ivory tower syndrome". Get out and talk to people and find out what they really see needs improvement.

    Being a professor can be a great job and UCCS offers a very positive work environment and culture.

    Current Employee - Professor in Colorado Springs, CO

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

    Pros

    Very positive organizational culture with lots of supportive, friendly, and bright people to work with. Great location if you like the mountains and a sunny climate. The university also provides lots of flexibility to do what you want to do in your research and teaching. Overall, it is a very encouraging, open, and positive place for tenure track faculty.

    Cons

    Salaries are a bit below market and like many universities it is somewhat slow to change and do new things

  11.  

    A great place to work, and a great place to attend - but just don't get branded as a student.

    I worked at University of Colorado Colorado Springs full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The culture at UCCS, for the most part, was very good for a "commuter school." Everyone was friendly, and you knew everyone in your department. Overall A.

    Cons

    At times it seemed like the University aspect of working could get to the employees. The climate had some shifts when there were no students around, and hints of disapproval of students could be seen.
