    I have been working at University of Connecticut Health Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    wonderful people to work with. I have worked here 18 years in October. I've been paid by grant, so my job is pretty secure, as long as I work hard, and well. But every 4-5 years it gets scary, what is going to happen to the grant? Is a Republican congress going to cut the budget again, and the NIH is going to get cut, Science is going to get cut, and am I going to lose my job? It almost happened last year. But I was saved, and I have a job for the next 4 years, as long as I do my job well, and a Republican congress doesn't pander to the teaparty.

    Cons

    parking can be a pain in the butt.

    Advice to Management

    Be forward thinking, continue the path you're on.

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

    Pros

    Professional, great benefits, nice coworkers, mission of workplace to help others obtain excellent healthcare. Coworkers and managers were always respectful and helpful. great teamwork in department. Onsite cafeteria. Huge facility, felt like its own "mini city". Felt lucky to have worked there.

    Cons

    Work was repetitive- Would have like more contact with patients and families. Often a long walk from parking to work. Sometimes had to take a shuttle from remote lots.

    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.
