    Current Employee - Custodian in Storrs, CT

    I have been working at University of Connecticut full-time (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.

    Former Employee - Graduate Teaching Assistant in Storrs, CT

    I worked at University of Connecticut full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A college town and weather is nice in (Short) spring, hot and humid in the summer, nice again in (Short) fall. winter is so BRUTAL!
    Friendly staff on campus. The ideal place just to study and and get your PhD because pretty much nothing is happening in that area.

    Cons

    In the middle of nowhere, so quiet town and mostly state park Forrest state. If you get bored you can just study or drive to NYC or Boston.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They are actually doing it but i think they need to attract more and more businesses and more residences to work and live there in Mansfield / Storrs area.
