    Pros

    Work is very flexible, and fun. Very nice laid back community to work for. A lot of independent work with very little supervision, and great appreciation.

    Cons

    There is poor pay and coverage for temporary employees. Temp. teachers are often left stranded, and kept as temps. so that the university does not have to give them benefits and a good wage.

    Advice to Management

    The university as a whole should begin to spread it's funding to other employees. As it is a public school the disparity between wages should be smaller than it currently is.


  8. Supportive, caring colleagues and supervisors that are dedicated to helping students.

    Pros

    VT is beautiful and people there are super friendly. Students are great to work with. Great benefits: health, investment accounts and many paid holidays. Strong commitment to diversity training/edu.

    Cons

    Little room to grow from counselor to management positions since department is small.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more professional opportunities via strategic CAPS connections with UVM community.

    Pros

    Absolutely gorgeous location and a lively undergraduate student body. The people are very pleasant and the campus is located downtown.

    Cons

    Very isolating from the international community and not a huge depth of expertise on campus in particular fields. If you want to study agriculture, then UVM has a lot of advantages but other than that it wasn't up my alley.


  11. Worked in the Sponsored Programs office... A lot of disjointed leadership.
