The best thing is the time off available via sick and vacation leave. The worst thing is likely the pay versus for-profit comparable roles.

Former Office Assistant in Boulder, Colorado

Working for the state means CU employees get fantastic benefits! Affordable health care and FSA are at the top of my list but community discounts and tuition breaks are also a big plus. I don't think there are really any negative things to mention.
