    I worked at University of Georgia full-time

    Pros

    Full benefits, pays off your student loans within 10 years of working there, paid federal vacation days

    Cons

    No support from upper management or any management, treat employees like slaves, over working employees, no feedback, no room for growth or to voice opinions, extremely long, unnecessary hours

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect and give them work that is in their job title. For example, if you are an assistant manager, treat them that way, not like a janitor.

    I worked at University of Georgia full-time

    Pros

    None, none, none, and none.

    Cons

    If I could rate UGA as a Zero star than I would! Extension, had the worst leadership and upper management covered up for other employees wrongdoings including harassment and violent behaviors. HR was contacted and nothing was ever done to resolve this problem, not only did this happen to me but four other female employees.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the director.

    I worked at University of Georgia full-time

    Pros

    There was free food sometimes. Learned a lot.

    Cons

    Lunch breaks were too short
    Manager always looking over shoulder
    High stress
    Pitted employees against each other
    Employees who were lazy but appeared busy when boss came were promoted, but hard working employees could only get promoted if they charmed their way up and looked good. Dehumanizing and demoralizing experience.

    Advice to Management

    Give longer lunch breaks, don't require 8 hours of work, but ensure projects get completed instead
