    Pros

    You can bring APERS retirement into the university, I was non-contributory, so they paid almost $9000 into my retirement each year; Health Insurance and other types of insurance is very reasonable, although the Co-pay and OOP has increased a lot; They provide Life Insurance up to $50K I believe. You have to pay if you want extra, but it's not much. If non-classified employee, which this position is, you get 4 weeks of vacation and 22 days sick. They dismiss you with pay on icy/treacherous days or let you go home early. If Little Rock Schools dismiss, then they dismiss.

    Cons

    You have to walk a long way to campus if you don't pay for parking. If you want up closer in the parking lots surrounding buildings, then you have to pay about $16 a paycheck or a month for that. Spots may not come available immediately. You may have to wait a bit for one.

    Advice to Management

    Give more recognition to employees for a good job.

    Pros

    If you want to work here this is one of the Nicest, easiest traffic, and cool place. Affordable city for a poor graduate student.

    Cons

    Not very safe part of the city, often you can hear gun shots from the nearby night clubs at the middle of the night. However, the campus police is doing their best to keep the campus at its safest condition.

    Advice to Management

    keep improving the safety, lightning of the darkest spots.

    I have been working at University of Arkansas at Little Rock full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Tuition discount, nice co-workers, decent facilities available to employees. The breakfast and lunch summer benefits are a positive step. Also the lunch truck programs from time to time are nice.

    Cons

    Managers have little to no personnel training. Many do not have appropriate professional academic credentials for business areas they support. Favoritism and nepotism in hiring and promotion is rampant.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone has to be held as accountable. The past is how we learn from our mistakes.
