    I have been working at University of Arizona full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Such a variety of positions, opportunities, and constant change. Once an employee is in the system it is a bit easier to move around. So many fields to choose from - both student-facing and behind the scenes. Have been happy to say I have been an employee for twenty years.

    Cons

    There are more people in Tucson looking for University jobs than there are University jobs. Any posting of positions can expect many applications and it is possible the employers don't even respond due to the numbers.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to have only legitimate positions on the Human Resources website - and not postings that actually have an employee named but procedures say that a post still has to be listed. There are also rumors of positions posted simply for the reason to see how many people would be interested.

    I worked at University of Arizona full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    As one of the largest employer in Tucson, the school spirit and culture is fabulous. The University is constantly updating, with new constructions and improvement happening all the time. The resources and benefits are pretty good, for example, UA Childcare Choice Program will reimburse you up to $4,000 each year for qualified childcare expenses if both parents are employed (at least one employed by UA).

    Cons

    Like most jobs, things can get political. Sometimes it's easy to get things done, other time, red tape provides major roadblock.

    Advice to Management

    Now that University Career Architecture Project (UCAP) has been implemented, there should be better oversight to make sure people are given merit-based salary increase or promoted regularly if they want to retain valuable employees. The current program still has faults as supervisors can still hinder the process if they chose not to provide incentives even though it is unjustified.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at University of Arizona full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Health care is the usual for Tucson. Retirement?

    Cons

    Minimal training. Classist environment. Demeaning treatment on a daily basis. Management is immature and inexperienced. You won't have the tools or the staff to do the job well.

    Advice to Management

    No reason to say. Their vanity would not hear it.
