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

    Pros

    Good benefits, flexible work schedule, cordial co-workers

    Cons

    Inaccurate job decseiption. Pay not equal with job expectations. HRD uses old methods to review jobs. Would rather google a jod description than ask the person working in the position. Did review of job description with norms that were 12 years old.

    Advice to Management

    Look at what employee does not what they think they do. Treat business side and academic equally.

    I worked at University of Hartford full-time

    Pros

    I had a decent work/life balance most of the year, and I was hired right out of undergrad. Great team to work with, and I felt like I was part of something larger.

    Cons

    Pay could have been a bit higher, and I'm unsure whether my female coworkers were being compensated at the same %increase/year

    Pros

    Amazing leadership, great atmosphere, expands your professional network with corporate leaders.

    Cons

    They should pay interns more than student workers because we do more work, otherwise I'd have no complaints.
