    I have been working at University of Utah (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good research opportunities. Lots of opportunities to collaborate with clinicians and scientists. Excellent facilities. My advisors were both great mentors.

    Cons

    Some of the graduation requirements were unclear, which caught me somewhat off guard at the end. There aren't many resources or assistance for career placement after graduation.

    Salaries are lower, traffic to and from the University

    Keep your employees happy:)

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

    Pros

    Great for students, easy scheduling, doesn't conflict with classes, only work on weekdays, always off on holidays

    Cons

    You can only work there under student status for 6 months after you graduate and then you have to find a new job. Not many promotions, no way to move up or really get a raise.

    Advice to Management

    Work on giving more tasks to senior employees and not promising without actually giving it.

    I worked at University of Utah part-time

    Pros

    Amazing professors and students. The professors help you out and guides you to the right direction.

    Cons

    The infrastructure and the facilities for research could further be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Make your hiring process for professors more stringent so that the best professors could be hired. A good professor is not who has a lot of knowledge, a good professor is one who can impart and transfer the knowledge to the students.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Campus is good environment to work. Stability.

    Cons

    Way too much political stuff going on in all areas. Promotion is on how much you kiss up, rather than how much you perform. Salaries are locked into paygrades and are hard to move, yet vice presidents come in at top corporate, or better, pay. VP salaries are around $250,000, while base-line employees are usually under the market average for the position.

    Advice to Management

    Reward performance. Institute bonus structure and pay raises that can be moved on that basis, not set into paygrades that can be antiquated.

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Really helped each other succeed.

    Cons

    Top management was mainly disconnected from the staff. It is essential to get to know the departments you will interact with.

    Advice to Management

    Good employees will stay longer if you show an interest in and get to know them individually.

    Pros

    Great place to gain experience, good faculty members, good place to start out teaching and great resources for you as a teacher. University offers teaching classes for teachers.

    Cons

    Pay is not very good, you are limited to teaching just one class and since it is non-major you don't get to experience planning and teaching other classes. No benefits for adjunct faculty.
