I have been working at University of Virginia part-time (More than a year)

Pros

laid back atmosphere, friendly management, flexible hours

Cons

snobby customers, lower pay, lack of parking

Advice to Management

More perks and recognition for job well done would go a long way. Although universities are facing shrinking budgets a slight raise everyone now and then would also go a long.

    I have been working at University of Virginia full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Reliable pay, good job security, very generous and flexible leave/vacation policy, progressive and tolerant work environment, little to know unpaid overtime for staff.

    Cons

    Promotion usually requires either getting a new position created for you, or moving from department to department. The relationship between faculty and staff will depend heavily on your organizational culture. Ultimately, the university wants to squeeze more productivity from fewer staff (just like most private companies), while at the same time, there is perhaps too much leeway for unproductive employees at the expense of a hardworking few.

    Advice to Management

    Better oversight on how workload is distributed among staff. UVA needs a huge investment in IT support.

    I have been working at University of Virginia full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great for personal growth, in education, presentation mannerisms, and thought processes. Fantastic region to live in, plenty of things to do. Training opportunities are a plenty. I personally am extremely happy about my choice in boss (PI), and feel that I've been given many chances to go to conferences, national labs, and training sessions in many different regions.

    Cons

    Cons more due to the nature of research itself, which is a fickle beast. Work-life balance is pretty good, except around grant renewal / writing time, when things become super hectic. I can't complain much about the salary of a graduate student, as health care and education costs are covered.
