    Pros

    SLC is a good place to live. Safety is good. People are friendly.

    Pros

    A forward looking, collaborative organization that has not realized it full potential...yet. New leadership is key areas will continue to accelerate innovation.

    Cons

    Being a state academic institution, the pace and bureaucracy can be frustrating at times. However, it is probably more adaptable than its peer institutions.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to innovate and take more risks!

    I have been working at University of Utah part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The job I have is a student job and they only require working events. It is accommodating to set the schedule for a student

    Cons

    Working for events means you only get paid when there are events. Football games are only seasonal but you do get to work.

    Pros

    You can make the project yours and really help in the overall design. The bosses and the director are great people and will definitely help with your overall growth. There is culture building every week or every other week where you do fun activities for the first 30 mins of the Friday.

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of.

    I worked at University of Utah part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Other than enjoying the team I worked with, it was exceptionally convenient with school. The schedule is made around your class schedule at the U and during finals week, the schedule adjusts as well. Working on campus is awesome because not only do you work with fellow students, but you also get to help fellow students with their computer needs. I also had an internship at the U and the campus store was great in adjusting to that.

    Cons

    You work occasional Saturdays and miss some football games since the store is open during those hours.

    Advice to Management

    I think more check ins (talks, reviews) with the employees would be great, especially since it's a small team and it only takes one employee to make a work day great or terrible. Otherwise I loved the team environment that the campus store promoted within its employees.

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible hours, excellent insurance.

    Cons

    Can be very political to work in higher ed. Difficult to get your foot in the door.

    Pros

    Great for students, close to classes, good for getting money to pay tuition or pocket expenses. They are flexible with class schedules.

    You don't get paid that much out of the gate

    Pros

    Good People, Greate retirement, Good health benefits

    Lower pay scale. Public sector mentality doesn't reward hard work as much

    Advice to Management

    compensate based upon performance, instead of arbitrary tenure, etc.
