    Pros

    Decent benefits, actually still have a pension plan / 10 years service to be vested. Most Staff is quite personable and a pleasure to work with. Have a plan for working out discipline when an incident occurs, good in theory only.

    Cons

    The governing body " Board of Regents" is not at all in control. The guidelines for discipline are not followed and problems are swept under the carpet here in 2015. Sad state of affairs. If you play the politics and the good old boy game you will do fine. Be a free spirit and speak your mind you will stay in trouble. People are targeted, especially females working in a males world.

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip women are equal regardless of chain of command!

    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.

    Pros

    UGA has a very strong reputation academically. The students are top notch, and the local college town is a great environment for students, families, and academics alike. The bus system here is incredibly efficient and convenient.

    Cons

    Parking on campus can be an issue at times.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at the way student fees are being used by the University. Some fees are just extra ways to tag onto tuition, and that's not fair to the students.
