    Pros

    wonderful people to work with. I have worked here 18 years in October. I've been paid by grant, so my job is pretty secure, as long as I work hard, and well. But every 4-5 years it gets scary, what is going to happen to the grant? Is a Republican congress going to cut the budget again, and the NIH is going to get cut, Science is going to get cut, and am I going to lose my job? It almost happened last year. But I was saved, and I have a job for the next 4 years, as long as I do my job well, and a Republican congress doesn't pander to the teaparty.

    Cons

    parking can be a pain in the butt.

    Advice to Management

    Be forward thinking, continue the path you're on.

    Professional, great benefits, nice coworkers, mission of workplace to help others obtain excellent healthcare. Coworkers and managers were always respectful and helpful. great teamwork in department. Onsite cafeteria. Huge facility, felt like its own "mini city". Felt lucky to have worked there.

    Cons

    Work was repetitive- Would have like more contact with patients and families. Often a long walk from parking to work. Sometimes had to take a shuttle from remote lots.

    Difficult to commute between UConn and UConn Health Center. In frequent bus service during weekends and nights that makes life difficult for researchers
