  6. Work Study

    I worked at University of Connecticut part-time

    Pros

    The work study jobs are typically easygoing and they are very understanding of the responsibilities that you have as a student.

    Cons

    The pay is not competitive but you essentially earn what you deserve to. Student jobs are typically just busy work.

    Advice to Management

    Create more jobs on campus for students paying their way through college, and don't cut student jobs as a way to lower costs.


  7. Top 20 Nation University

    I have been working at University of Connecticut full-time

    Pros

    UConn is an active scientific environment with a beautiful campus. It is very strong in some areas such as business, bio-medical, computer science and environmental engineering. It has good facilities and infrastructures. Lovely place!

    Cons

    Graduate assistants contract is not fair. Provided insurance is poor and barely covers the medical expenses. Hopefully it is going to get better by efforts of Grad Union.

    Advice to Management

    UConn highly emphasizes on research mostly because of funding sources. This has led to low teaching quality. Professors barely have time to take care of classes.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at University of Connecticut part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was a student machinist. It was a great place to work. They worked around my college schedule.

    Cons

    Like any big institution, the pay was poor and it was very unusual to be able to get a raise

    Advice to Management

    More money for the engineering department machine shop. It was underfunded when I worked there in the late 90's

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at University of Connecticut full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The quality of students is high. Faculty members are highly accomplished. The campus is beautiful with a lost of commitment from the State of Connecticut.

    Cons

    I cannot think of much. Perhaps the University is known to the public only as a great basketball school. The University must make an effort to publicize the research conducted.
