    Pros

    People are friendly and outgoing. The teachers are somewhat accessible. Overall, UVM is what you make of it. Join a lab, or find a way to get involved.

    Cons

    Not very competitive. Doesn't stand out on your resume. Hard to find a job afterwords. You have to seek extra help if you need it. Classes are usually big your first 2-3 years.


  2. Great place to work.

    Pros

    Academic environment. Great co-workers. Benefits. Autonomy. Work/Life balance. I can't speak for other programs though - they vary according to each department's staff.

    Cons

    Low salary. Long wait for parking permit. No staff union

    Advice to Management

    My immediate management is very supportive.


  3. Some awesome staff

    Pros

    Amazing staff! I worked in Harris Millis with the best possible staff a guy could ask for. I also was answering to a fantastic RD.

    Cons

    Training program was a little long, but it does give you an excellent bonding opportunity with your staff. It is frustrating having to stay behind an extra day to close up the dorms during some of the breaks, but it isn't a problem if you like your team.

    Advice to Management

    Try to reform the mandatory floor events. Some are thrown together last minute just to meet the requirement and that makes less residents show up to some of the funner ones.

    Pros

    I learned a lot in this university and the city is so beautiful. Nice people here. Nice place. I have taken several courses during my time.

    Cons

    The pay is very low considering the workload and the cost of living. The rental is expensive compare to other place and the tuition is high.

    Pros

    Vermont is a utopia compared to other us states

    Cons

    It may be hard if your black- in that Vermont is 98% white. I'm brown, so I stood out... But I know most the people I met thought "what is he?".

    Advice to Management

    Keep being a boss

    Pros

    By far the greatest benefit of working at UVM is the tuition remission. I've taken several courses during my time here and even received some graduate credit. This is an incredible benefit. If you are looking to go back to school or advance your education this is a great place to work.

    Cons

    The pay is very low considering the workload and the cost of living (especially housing) in this area. There is very little opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider the amount of compensation. Burlington is an expensive place to live and salaries do not keep up with the cost of living.

    Pros

    I had really fantastic supervisors and I was able to gain more responsibility and skills throughout my four years working part-time during my undergrad

    Cons

    The office I worked for tends to keep employees unsalaried and just below full-time, making me feel pressured to move somewhere with more security. They can also be a VERY high-stress environment, but they work to create some work-life balance.
