    Current Employee - Custodian in Storrs, CT

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

    Pros

    Workplace camaraderie is above expectations and not the usual day to day boredom. Vibrant community, student interaction is always positive & friendly. Salary is fantastic, benefits and their cost are incredible. Retirement healthcare & pension assures me of a smooth retirement.

    Cons

    Too much emphasis on making outside beautiful while inside buildings are in dire need of improvements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Capitol budgets need to include REAL infrastructure improvements, not landscaping and paint alone. Employee input is valuable to any company/organization- UConn leaders & trustees need to pay attention. This is academia though so I understand the politics.
