    Advice to Management

    Improve communication with employees.Stop using intimidation towards staff ,always recognize staffs strengths and not just focus on negatives.

    I have been working at University of Connecticut Health Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A very collaborative environment and a great PhD program in Immunology. You get to learn a lot from students and all the professors. Flow cytometry facility and all core facilities are easily accessible and greatly managed. So its very easy to get to use instruments needed for your work.

    Cons

    Projects in all the labs may not be directly applicable to human work or their may not be any disease connection to your work. Which can come in your way when you are competiting with other students after PhD to find jobs. But research done is sound and good and one gets to learn lot.

    Advice to Management

    None at this point.

    Pros

    Great professionals with intelligent minds.

    I worked at University of Connecticut Health Center as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity to gain experience conducting legal research and analyzing legal issues such as whether the Health Center is required to provide reasonable accomodations in conformity with the ADA

    Cons

    I honestly have no cons to say about this employer. It is a part-time position to gain experience working in the legal field, and you will gain this experience with an attorney who wants to help you learn.

    I worked at University of Connecticut Health Center (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are state benefits and are ridiculously generous but don't wonder why they are "broke". All that costs an insane amount of money.

    Cons

    Very elitist environment if you work in the schools, clinics, or hospital. Very few docs and administrators will respect staff. Most treat staff like children. Overall they treat everyone like hourly employees. If you are a mid level professional who has current skills, you will be surrounded with people with ancient skills. You will never be rewarded for doing your job well, being conscientious or going above and beyond. Someone who knows less than you and works less than you probably makes so much more than you because the state rewards service and NEVER performance. The union membership is "optional" meaning if you decline membership, you can't vote and you will STILL pay dues. The union president and vp make so much money that it will make you puke given that they don't have much control or influence in anything and in more recent times skill nor the ability to negotiate.

    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    UCONN is a union shop. Difficult to meet the 90 day probation period but if you do you are in for life.

    Cons

    Because it is a union shop there are many employees that are there that shouldn't be. Difficult to terminate substandard employees in a union shop.

    Advice to Management

    Wouldn't help.
