    Pros

    everything you could possibly need is on/near campus

    Cons

    Old boys club, pure and simple. Don't expect fair treatment if you're anything other than a white male - or respect from your own Dean.

    I have been working at University of Connecticut part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working at the University of Connecticut has better and absolute Joy. The office environment is face paced, even though there are multiple areas of specialty, we all function as a well oiled team.

    Cons

    The only thing I can think of as a consequence is the location and commute. I am traveling from the Providence area daily. So I would definitely recommend moving closers to campus if you plan to work on the Storrs Campus.

    As a graduate student, you can find a lot of opportunities for Graduate Assistantship in different departments.

    Pros

    Fellow student workers are very nice and teamwork oriented. Very respectful and understanding of those participating in UConn Recreation activities. Easy to acquire desired number of hours wanted.

    Cons

    Late hours of operation. Management often pressures subordinates to take undesired hours.

    Advice to Management

    Upper level management (Executive Director) needs to be less cost-cut oriented and more humanistic.
