    I worked at University of Vermont part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Interesting subjects for the research I found myself doing.
    Professors were very nice
    Research could be done on my own time

    Cons

    No opportunities for advancement.
    Once school finished, work dried up
    Work I was doing was fairly boring data gathering

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lack of opportunities for advancement

    Dudley H. Davis Center - Working here was one of the best decisions I made during my years at UVM.

    I worked at University of Vermont

    Pros

    Everyone was intelligent, thoughtful and respectful. The attention given to closing the feedback loop served as an encouraging (and accurate) indicator of managers' commitment to improving the UVM experience for both employees and visitors. As a UVM employee, having a voice was only among the many opportunities that help build relevant real-life and career experience. On the job training, employee appreciation events and room for upward mobility were only the tip of the iceberg. My experiences working at and with UVM were nothing short of positive. And the skills gained during my time there left me better prepared for life after college than any class could ever offer.

    Cons

    Tough to find a downside to working at the DC. Lots of great people, and an encouraging and supportive community of leaders. I highly recommend finding a way to get involved.

    I have been working at University of Vermont full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    A great place to work. They have a great benefits package with great health insurance, tuition remission, and a commitment to a healthy work-life balance. The people at the university and greater community are caring and supportive. Burlington, Vermont is one of the best small cities in the US offering clean air, great schools, a diverse community and has a good venue supporting the arts.

    Cons

    There are no cons as far as I am concerned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work in keeping employees happy.

    Good people

    I have been working at University of Vermont part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy money, lots of job opportunities, and the people in charge are flexible about hours

    Cons

    Depending on the type of job, hours can be scarce as the University tries to hire as many people as possible.

    Pros

    Research is promoted by administration that is helpful - IRB works with scientists to get research approved, for example. Very fast turnaround on IRB proposals, requests for technology access, and just simply great service when you need it.

    Cons

    Budgetary constraints have handcuffed research in odd ways. Specifically it is difficult to get updated computers - I use my own laptop as the early 2000s era Mac in my office can't run a spreadsheet large enough for my data, let alone a more sophisticated statistical package.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Budget for technology infrastructure upgrades in the overhead costs from grants (honestly, F&A is up to nearly 50%, it's ridiculous to have so much backdated technology with so much cash flow from grants).

    Overcrowded city with no parking, terrible weather, and limited opportunities elsewhere. Low salary for level of education, and high living costs.
