    I have been working at University of Vermont full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Large university with great benefits
    -Tuition remission
    -Great atmosphere/sense of community
    -Cannot speak on all of the departments campus-wide but most seem to be an enjoyable place to work, good hours, etc.

    Cons

    -UVM does not prioritize employees' ability to move upward/career progression. A hard-working employee who has grown within their position and taken on additional responsibilities struggles to get approval for a promotion. Almost seems as though the University looks for reasons not to promote employees which is frustrating because the pay is not great.
