    Excellent Place to Work

    Public Service Associate (Current Employee)

    ProsThe University of Georgia is a good place to work. I have great colleagues and via collaboration, our work is rewarding. It is nice to see our work actually makes an impact on the state, the local community and our students.

    ConsThere are several campuses of the University of Georgia, including Griffin and Tifton. Sometimes there are technological problems between the campuses because of outdated technology and software. This can make interaction and collaboration more difficult at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to invest in current technology and encourage collaboration among faculty.

    Love it

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe people. Hands down, the people and the atmosphere are fantastic. I have had enough other jobs to appreciate how special the environment here is.

    ConsLike any academic or competitive atmosphere, there can sometimes be too much of an emphasis on competition. This can and does damage relationships occasionally.

    Great University, but not very pleasant experiences with Administration

    Lab Manager I (Former Employee) Athens, GA

    ProsGreat University for kids! Great town to raise the family. A lot of things to do in surrounding cities/states.

    ConsSome administrative departments are not very supportive or pleasant to work with. For example, the international student office was not efficient or sometimes even not professional.

    I have loved working with UGA students.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSatisfaction in any job is determined, to a great extent, by the people you work with. Athens is filled with great people. I wasn't sure I'd enjoy working in academia, but UGA has changed my mind.

    ConsThe environment can be rather bureaucratic at times. Changes in upper management and deans of schools can impact daily work flow.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOverall, keep up the good work. Always stay focused on the student experience, above all else.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
