    Negative Outlook

    I worked at University of Vermont full-time

    Pros

    Small company with lots of potential to create coatings that are natural, environmentally friendly, and durable.

    Cons

    Money should be flowing in the doors, but for some reason its not. Good ideas, good people, bad structure and unwillingness to accept change and drive the company to where it needs to be. No benefits offered.

    Advice to Management

    Change structure, provide benefits, be honest

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at University of Vermont as a contractor

    Pros

    Continuing Education department allows wide range of Vermonters to access classes.

    Cons

    Poor pay. Too much focus on the bottom line and not enough on student needs. Not everything can be taught in a filled up class.

    Advice to Management

    Value *all* your workers. Lowering student tuition and thereby lowering adjunct pay because it's based on student tuition - when adjuncts have to do the same amount of work per credit hour - is inappropriate and unfair.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    It's a job, and if what you want to do is teach for the rest of your life that's great. Campus is pretty.

    Cons

    There is little actual support for research; infrastructure is lacking and deferred maintenance on science buildings is spec'd over 18M$.

    Advice to Management

    It is difficult to see the value in compensating workers with great views. In the end, faculty and staff at UVM need a living wage in order to be productive.
