    Current Employee - Graduate Research Assistant in Storrs, CT

    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

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Regional Campuses Are Neglected

    I have been working at University of Connecticut full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    You feel as if you are helping society and this makes up for the so, so salary. Good benefits. Not too much of a Big Brother atmosphere.

    Cons

    Faculty and staff at the regional campus feel that though thier voices are heard, they aren't valued if they don't help Storrs. We are basically told what to do from Storrs and don't have much control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will get a better idea of what's really going on if you talk to the rank and file faculty and staff without the directors present.

    Recommends
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
