    I worked at Utah Valley University part-time

    Good work environment and colleagues. I was in school at the time, so they were very flexible with my schedule. They wanted me to put my education first. I loved my time at UVU as both a student and employee.

    I worked at Utah Valley University full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers, benefits, time-off, tuition waivers

    Cons

    Poorly trained management, HR didn't seem to trust employees

    Advice to Management

    Actually reprimand people instead of promoting them. Provide better avenues for employees to make confidential reports about management. Empower lower level employees.

    I have been working at Utah Valley University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    UVU is up and coming and is very willing to be innovative in their practices. People are generally really awesome to work with and are motivated to help students from every background. It is cool to be a part of an institution like UVU that is growing so rapidly and is anticipated to continue to do so.

    Cons

    Low pay and very bureaucratic. People generally do no work here to make lots of money. You really have to passionate about higher ed and the mission of UVU otherwise the bureaucracy and low pay will burn you out.

    I have been working at Utah Valley University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people working with the First Year Experience department are positive, high-energy people. The organization works hard to produce effective results, and I have had opportunities to grow and develop a number of important skills that I will be able to apply to any future resumé

    Cons

    It's not always easy to work with freshmen; often the new students are dissatisfied with the mandatory orientation. It can be hard to maintain a constantly positive and high-energy attitude toward them. The work is fast-paced and demands a lot of energy. Regardless, I enjoy it.

  8. "Good Place to Work"

    I worked at Utah Valley University part-time

    Pros

    My job was to vacuum the library, and as long as I showed up on time and did my job there was little management. Easy work, just put my headphones on and walked around vacuuming.

    Cons

    The hours were from 9:15PM - 1:15 AM
    Little social interaction
