    I have been working at University of Colorado full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and a spectacular work/life balance.

    Cons

    The pay is relatively low and there is little room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Management has been very good so far! My only advice would be to find a way to pay the employees more as many of my coworkers are chronically under significant financial stress.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule is possible, benefits are half-way decent, easy commuting distance to most towns with public transportation.

    Pros

    It was a great place to work with open minded individuals

    There was a lack of customer service between different departments on campus. Some are more willing to help than others but often people pass you off onto the next person instead of offering help.

    Pros

    Great people. Amazing University with a bright future

    Cons

    Way too liberal. They spent too much time training staff to make the university a cushy environment for the kids. Need to teach kids some life skills instead

    Advice to Management

    Let people think for themselves

    Pros

    The position fit perfectly with my school schedule; gave me the opportunity to practice my research and editing skills by grading papers for my professor.

    The position was only part time, therefore the pay was a bit lower than expected.
