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

    Pros

    The university of Colorado offers a great benefit package depending on what track you are on. Research and faculty track employees have amazing retirement contributions. You put in a mandatory 5% and they put in 10%. The university offers different education incentives depending what campus you are on.

    Cons

    PARA employees are limited in their advancement, pay increases and retirement contributions. Other employees can be promoted and get larger pay increases. The squeaky wheel get the grease here. You need to be vocal about wanting advancement opportunities and larger pay increases. If you don't negotiate a good pay grade when you start it is hard to make it up.

    I worked at University of Colorado part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours for students. If you need to work part time to make ends meet, the University of Colorado can be very accommodating.

    Cons

    Pay is a little low. However, you will make it up with the great work and life balance offered by the University of Colorado.

    Advice to Management

    Consider promoting from within more. The accrual of knowledge of employees is often underestimated in place of outsiders who have flashier resumes.
