    I worked at University of Utah part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    As part time, there are benefits if you are a work study student. Can work close to home, if you live on campus.

    Cons

    If you aren't a student or full-time, you don't get the pros of the job. Might as well work anywhere else where there are better opportunities to move up in your job.

    I have been working at University of Utah full-time (More than a year)

    School is out but you learn quite a bit on the job, plus if you break your back or lose your mind they have the best insurance around. Tons of opportunity to move up.

    Like all big companies, it is easy to find yourself in the wrong circles.

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

    Pros

    Amazing health insurance; good vacation/sick day accrual; Most offices are laidback so you can dress down; fun to be around students; lots of great events and free lectures to attend; half off tuition

    Recognize good work and be mindful of staff morale. Really good employees leave the U because they can't make any money and feel unvalued
