    I have been working at University of Connecticut full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice working environment which is full of nice people. The university is situated in a very nice location which has easy access to Hartford area .

    Cons

    The main issues are with the parking and Insurance. The old insurance plan we had was really nice, however the new plan does not cover most of the problems (dental etc.) The parking lots are situated far a way. Hard to walk on snowy, cold days. (specially when shuttles are limited during when undergrads are away)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Making the campus beautiful is reall encouraging

    Minimal work, managers didn't care if we were there or not. Pay was pretty good. We played monopoly a lot.

    Getting up early in the morning was tough. Not a ton a room for career advancement.

    Keep a better eye on employees. We literally played monopoly 4 days out of the week
