    Pros

    UCONN is a union shop. Difficult to meet the 90 day probation period but if you do you are in for life.

    Cons

    Because it is a union shop there are many employees that are there that shouldn't be. Difficult to terminate substandard employees in a union shop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wouldn't help.

    Pros

    There are some great faculty/staff members if you know where to look. Access to equipment and resources is easy and beneficial.

    Cons

    Bad workplace dynamics detract from the overall quality. Can easily lose sight of the good due to some of the bad. The construction is an issue, but won't be a long term problem.
