    Current Employee - Administrative in Salt Lake City, UT

    I have been working at University of Utah full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay is decent relative to Salt Lake City averages, and the benefits are generally good. Health is good, dental is OK, psychological is acceptable, and vision coverage is poor. The staff work culture is very sedate, great place to work if you want to take it easy.

    Cons

    Career advancement is difficult without moving between departments. Salary increases are dependent on the Utah State Legislature (translation: don't expect more than 1-2%). The application/interview/hiring process is extensive for almost any position, it's best to apply if you already have a job elsewhere and can spare the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The administration does not inspire a great degree of confidence among the staff or faculty, as they appear preoccupied with initiatives and programs that relate only to a very small proportion of "favored" researchers or departments.

    I have been working at University of Utah part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great coworkers and boss, Everyone is really flexible when it comes to setting your schedule because everyone else are also students.

    Cons

    Super boring sometimes and time passes so slowly, not much to do when it's not football season, really low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand the nature of the job isn't too demanding or technical but a little bit more money would be nice. The stores literally make millions of dollars but you can't afford like 9 or 10 dollars an hour for the employees?

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

    Pros

    Extremely good group of people that have similar interests in advancing higher education. The workload was reasonable and as student, each department understands that school work always take priority over your duties.

    Cons

    Pay was not as favorable for lower level staff, but hey it's a resume builder and you get plenty of good experience by just interacting with people around you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please keep giving students to the resource to succeed in classroom but well beyond their college career. Encourage them to pursue a meaningful career whether it is with public institution or in the private sector.

    Pros

    Great Atmosphere in the university. People around you are really very friendly. Close knit team. They paid me decent salary which was enough to take care of my living expenses.

    Cons

    The wheather is not that great. It snows heavily and the place is covered with snow for more than half an year.
    Sometimes you would have to climb on to a 20ft ladder to finish a few installations and won't suggest someone who has fear of heights to take this up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management is really good. They are friendly.
