Pros

Free tuition for up to 15 credits per year, great benefits, UVM understands the work-life balance & will help maintain it, friendly people, my department is more generous than most with the raises

Cons

Administrative headaches, different systems run by different departments with lots of overlap, free tuition benefits are not accessible to everyone equally, poor salaries, I've seen people dressed down on a very personal level by some overreaching higher-ups

Advice to Management

create a uniform system for reviewing employees - I am one of the few who gets reviewed, but it seems very subjective & "on a whim" as to whether I will get a glowing review or an awful one

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good and convenient place to work for students. Staff is generally nice. Depending on position, there are lots of opportunities to meet other students. Laid back atmosphere. Some jobs allow workers to listen to music.

    Cons

    The pay is not good (which is probably expected). Not much room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Please pay more.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits package. Good communication among team and management.

    Cons

    We get lower salary compared to the market but that's because we get a lot more through benefits (free tuition, 403b contribution, etc)

    Advice to Management

    None.
