    Very flexible and good job to have while in school and balancing a full-time course load.

    The amount of hours you would get in a pay period was unpredictable which made it impossible to have a set pay check.

    Pros

    friendly people, southern culture, Athens is a medium sized town which has a lot of fun. the main campus is very close to smokey mountain, Atlanta metro area.

    Cons

    Griffin campus is boring. I am a person on Griffin campus. although griffin is 40 min away from ATL airport, but still a very lonely place. Too crowed on main campus though.

    Pros

    Lots of job opportunity for entry level people. Good benefits. Stable employment. The town. University amenities (the bus system, university library, etc).

    Cons

    Pay is very bad compared to industry for professional scientists and research personnel. Competence and taking on more responsibility is appreciated with words and vague promises but no increase in pay. It's more about politics and whether the people who control pay roll like you and not your responsibility and competence level.

    Advice to Management

    Raise unfairly low wages for skilled professional scientist labor.

    Pros

    Athens is a "just the right size" kind of town; many departments and many opportunities; excellent health insurance and retirement benefits.

    Cons

    Pay not on par with private industry; Though a major university, it's still more about who you know than what you know at times.

    Advice to Management

    Salaries have been largely frozen for years, but new buildings pop up all the time. A university needs new facilities, but needs the best staff and faculty as well.
