    I have been working at University of Minnesota Duluth full-time

    Pros

    It's a smaller school so I feel like my voice can be heard when need be. Lots of good opportunities to participate in student committees and leadership roles.

    Cons

    No cons to speak of in my department. Others may be different though.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Good location in Duluth

    Cons

    Not enough hours, don't have competitive pay vs the cities while my rent is nearly the same. No one leaves their job so openings are hard

    Advice to Management

    pay more

    I have been working at University of Minnesota Duluth part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is nice that the school is connected by tunnels so you do not have to walk outside in the winter. It is in a beautiful location and the campus is really nice in the summer when you can be outside. There are many community-building events and outings for undergraduates.

    Cons

    The parking is atrocious and the school keeps taking parking spaces away due to construction. Some departments/facilities are really run-down, but there is a nice student union. It is very expensive to live in Duluth and hard to find somewhere to rent that is affordable.

    Advice to Management

    Build a parking ramp! Graduate students at Duluth do not have the same opportunities and services available to them than Twin Cities does. We do not have time (nor money!) to attend athletic events/use all the facilities that we have to pay huge student fees for. Don't charge extra for gym classes when we already pay an athletic fee.

    I have been working at University of Minnesota Duluth full-time

    Pros

    Get to live in Duluth

    Cons

    Never had a raise above inflation level.
    Leadership values are confusing and presented with obvious lies

    Advice to Management

    Upper level administration needs complete replacement with people that understand this business.

    Pros

    Relatively small campus keeps everyone connected. Student and community focused education and research makes UMD a good place for engineering student.

    Cons

    Too cold outside during winter. If you look for other activities like soccer or anything, you will find it difficult here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing good.
