International Education Financial Director (Former Employee) – Athens, Ga. – May 18, 2015
UGA is a great place to work. People are great and everyone honestly cares about the success of the students. It's a different place to work versus the private sector, but the goal is the same and consistent throughout, quality of education is the top priority. UGA is under relatively new Senior Management and they are doing a great job. Some levels of Senior Management are a bit myopic, but the vision remains clear, quality in the delivery of the student experience. There are several positions in Senior Management that would benefit from turnover.
Productive workplace with a strong interest in fundraising.
Administrative Associate I (Current Employee) – Athens, GA – January 21, 2014
My position is one with many different job duties. They range from typical administrative work such as processing employee reimbursements, purchasing items for the office, etc., to compiling research of foundations providing grants that may be beneficial to The University of Georgia. The research aspect of the position is very enjoyable to me. It's great to be able to help a professor or research worker on campus connect with a foundation and be able to obtain funding from that foundation for a project they are working on. To know that your work made that possible is very gratifying.
Facilities Clerk I (Former Employee) – Griffin, GA – April 10, 2012
Overall, I can't complain much at all about my experience working for the University of Georgia. The compensation wasn't the best, given that it is state government, but the benefits were excellent.
The work standard was fair. Do your job, and you're fine.
The main flaw is that your position within the University basically remains static once you are there. There is little to no chance to ever see a promotion. They like keeping their workers exactly where they are, rather than risk shaking things up.
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Athens, GA – June 27, 2013
On a typical day,I would assist the main professor with copies, grading exams, and classify student information. Around exam period, there would be so much to do in so little time, so I definitety learned a lot about time management and working under pressure. The hardes part of the job would have to be giving back the exams, since most students wanted to argue about their grades. The most enjoyable part would have to be the learning experience. Working there made me realize that I can work in any environment,
Associate Accountant (Current Employee) – Griffin, GA – May 9, 2013
A typical day would for me would be reconciling reports, processing payroll, budget amendments, journal vouchers, and getting workers hired for the two departments that I work for. With that being said, I don't always have typical days. The management and co-workers here are easy to work with. The hardest part of my job is having so many different rules that are constantly changing. For example, The Board of Regents has its set of rules, UGA has its set of rules, each college in UGA has its set of rules. This can be frustrating at times, but at the same time, keeps my job interesting. I am always up for a challenge. The most enjoyable part of my job are my co-workers. We are a team here.
PROGRAM ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Jeffersonville, GA – April 3, 2015
I really enjoyed working for UGA. Although, it was a part-time job, it was great for me living in a small town with minimal expenses. I landed a full-time job and decided to keep both jobs. My supervisor at the time did not like that I had both jobs and did everything he did to get me to quit. When that didn't work, he tried to fire me! I reported him to the UGA HR department, and the case was being handled, but due to personal issues, I ended up quitting. I now wish I had stayed, because he retired and I feel like he painted a bad picture of me to UGA and for that reason, I can't get another job there. I may be wrong, but it's been 3 years and I don't have the job yet. However, I still feel like it was a great company to work for and if circumstances were different and I had stayed, UGA would have done right by me.
In a small town in Georgia. that name carries a lot of weight. It's UGA! I think I've said enough.
Food service (Former Employee) – Athens Ga – July 19, 2014
The job itself isn't bad, the mangers are horrible and don't know how to talk to people. It's no room for advancement, they are very picking about you using your annual and sick leave time. They make up rules to get you not to use them. You schedule can change anytime and it's nothing you can do about it.
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Athens, GA – August 27, 2012
During the course of my research experience, I learned how to properly use laboratory equipment and how to communicate the experiment to others in the lab. A typical day included cleaning the materials to be used and using various equipment and software to analyze the data.
