    I worked at University of Kentucky full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are good, but deteriorating.

    Cons

    Lower level employees, who get the work done, are treated like they don't matter.

    Advice to Management

    You need the people who get the work done more than you need the over-paid administrators. The place is top-heavy and the workers are struggling to keep up.

    I have been working at University of Kentucky full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great location. Nice access to recreational and educational activities.

    Cons

    Budgetary constraints. State funding is declining requiring large tuition increases (on an inflation adjusted basis) to balance the Universities budget.

    Advice to Management

    Limit enrollment to provide a higher quality of education to the students that the State is willing to fund.
