Suggestions for improvement

  • Better compensation and career ladder

What I like about the company

I have worked here for 10 years. I feel UC values diversity and learning. There are many opportunities for professional development. The benefits are really good and I highly recommend them.

What I dislike about the company

Compensation is low, but it is understandable because it is higher education. Resources can be limited at times and you may be the only one who does your job.

Suggestions for improvement

  • There is some recycling available, it would be great if there was more of a push for recycling in the labs

What I like about the company

Good benefits, flexible work schedule, a lot of independence when deciding projects

What I dislike about the company

Pay is typical for postdocs in general, which overall is low. A better postdoc association with help with next job placement would be great

Suggestions for improvement

  • Continue to focus on developing staff and giving folks the opportunity to move up in the organization (very few promotions occur here)

What I like about the company

It's a good place to work that I recommend to friends. No place is without it's challenges however. We work 45 hour weeks (officially) when other comparable places work between 35-40 hour weeks. The time off during the holidays is nice, though, but we don't get every holiday off during the rest of the year (i.e. work straight through from MLK day to Memorial Day)

What I dislike about the company

work week schedule and benefits are pretty expensive (including parking)

  • More dedicated parking lots or garages dedicated only to staff at a lower cost.

What I like about the company

This company has gone above and beyond in terms of recognizing the in house talent and promoting from within. Since joining in 2014, I have received 2 promotions and a increased salary.

What I dislike about the company

Parking is one of my biggest issues. In certain areas you have to pay for parking and the university does not reimburse for it.

Very friendly people who are eager to help a coworker out in need.

What I dislike about the company
