The Faculty of the David Eccles business school is very friendly and cooperative.
The pay is a bit lower than I would like
- 4.0Nov 24, 2023Building ManagerFormer Employee, more than 1 yearSalt Lake City, UT
As a student employee, this position gives you tons of freedom to gain experience and to progress in your degree. You gain knowledge in event management, facilities and utilities, audio/visual planning, setup, and operation, and a general exposure to the university employment system. On top of that, you have a lot of free time to do homework or whatever you want when you aren’t actively doing rounds or managing events. As a student employee, you also get access to reduced book prices.
Nothing unprecedented for a campus job. The pay could be better, but the scheduling is pretty flexible, and there are opportunities for raises and advancement, even if you only work there for a year or two.
- 4.0Nov 17, 2023Postdoctoral Research AssociateCurrent Employee, more than 1 yearSalt Lake City, UT
The University of Utah is not as prestigious as more well known schools but has many opportunities due to being a less competitive environment. Finding these opportunities can be a challenge at first but with many postdoctoral events on campus and collaborative events finding the right people is doable. Many of the opportunities such as academic small business startup academic spin off and the Technology Licensing Office are very willing to help.
With being a less well known school there aren't as many resources available with instrumentation but this is very dependance on the department. The flip side of this is some of the high end instruments aren't very competitive to book time on.

Great learning environment, I loved how they encouraged questions
Grants given often required a huge investment in class enrollment which resulted and less time I could commit to lab work and projects, so overall it felt paid out more then i got paid
- 5.0Nov 8, 2023Lab SpecialistCurrent EmployeeSalt Lake City, UT
-the 14.2% immediately vested retirement -the 12 sick, 12 vaycay, 2 personal days per year, and 12-14 holidays/closure days per year -standard 1.0 FTE is 40 hours per week -if you're in a good lab it's good -not looked down upon by grad students or post docs, but viewed as the same level
-very hard to get a raise unless your supervisor is willing to advocate for you, above a 10% raise there is lots of red tape but they can do it if they want to
- 5.0Nov 24, 2023Teaching AssistantCurrent EmployeeSalt Lake City, UT

There is no such cons of being in this role if you’re able to manage time.
