    I worked at University of Georgia part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    UGA really focuses on improving their employees which is to be expected from an academic environment. Leeway is given for those who wish to be creative in their positions.

    Cons

    sometimes the restrictions of working within a university can be frustrating

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management probably can't do much when it comes to bureaucratic or regulations from state governmental bodies.

    I have been working at University of Georgia

    Pros

    Get to work with bright, intelligent law students and learn from them as they learn from you.

    Cons

    This is just an occasional, part-time gig, so I don't really have much insight in to what it is like to work there as a staff or faculty member. But, I can say my own, limited experience has been very positive. Ratings below are from the perspective of this job only.

    I worked at University of Georgia part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The staff is engaging, dynamic and the leadership is genuinely interested in building the values of their employees as individuals. All in all a very rewarding division of the University of Georgia.

    Cons

    The challenge comes in the fact that it is a paid-by-the-hour position meaning that it doesn't provide a steady income for a lot of college students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing because being a member of your staff has been one of the most rewarding positions I will ever fill.

    Current Employee - Procurement Specialist in Athens, GA

    I have been working at University of Georgia

    Pros

    Learned a lot about procurement which I felt has given me a good base for future opportunities. The state's benefits are excellent and the office politics are minimal. All staff are pleasant and easy to work with and it is always easy to get time off.

    Cons

    Not much chance for advancement - pay is below the industry standard for the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer to pay people more than the minimum intro salary and you'll be able to get better qualified people.
