Executive Suite Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – March 28, 2017
If your a contract employee and not unionized it is a difficult place to work right now due to the budget climate. People are on edge and there is a lot of unexpected turnover because people are looking for other work.
The institution is valuable, work has peaks and valleys if you like that kind of environment.
Adjunct Professor - Documentary Film Production (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – January 28, 2017
I was hired to run the Documentary Film Production Course at UAA. It was a small class as the course was very new, but the experience was one I will not soon forget. It was my official paid teach job since acquiring my MFA in production.
Lovely views but very unorganized and very dependent on who you work for.
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Conico-Phillips Integrated Science Building – January 19, 2017
Most people are very relaxed and friendly, but some are very difficult to work with. Who you work for is very influential on your overall experience. Also, getting things done can be very difficult as people are very bad at procrastinating and the deadlines are more like suggestions unless there is something that you found out about two days (or hours) before. It is a very diverse environment, with lots of people of varying backgrounds which is always fun to find out about.
Recitation Leader (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK 99508 – December 29, 2016
ANSEP is a great environment for students. The staff are exceptional. Having a computer lab and study rooms that are specifically for Engineering and Science Students makes for an environment that is conducive to learning and success.
Professor (College of Engineering) (Current Employee) – Anchorage, AK – December 13, 2016
Great place to work. Culture is very friendly and collaborative. Tenure standards are reasonable. Salary is quite competitive. Work-life balance and faculty wellness are a high priority (unlike other academic institutions). Overall, if you enjoy the outdoors and have a sense of adventure, Anchorage is a great place to live and UAA is one of the best places to work.
Competitive salary, professional opportunities, good culture
Resident Advisor (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – September 21, 2016
In this job I learned a lot about time management, organization, collaboration, and diversity. There were many different tasks related to the job including, but not limited to, conflict resolution, program planning and implementation, policy enforcement, and contact logging. The management of this organization was going through a large transition throughout my time with UAA, but overall was very good. The hardest part of the job was striking a balance between work and life. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the residents and seeing the positive impact your work was having on their lives.
Assistant the Provost (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – February 9, 2016
Work was engaging and always intriguing. The University is large, but not so large that you have no idea what is going on across the campus. Turnover was low and allowed for strong working relations among staff and management.
Contracted Consultant (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – January 22, 2016
This program works closely with students and offers them a better understanding of how the university is run, while giving them a safe work environment located on campus, and some disposable income to boot.
Upper management leaves something to be desired. Mid-level management, however, is outstanding in their efforts to make up for the lack of support and leadership and conducts themselves in a commendable and exemplary fashion.
Pleasantly challenging job requirements, however unpleasant work environment
Research Technician I (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – December 23, 2015
The most enjoyable part of this job was constantly learning new scientifically relevant techniques and expanding my skill set for future job placement. The hardest part of this job was dealing with the unpleasant work environment created by overly worked, underpaid undergraduate and graduate students, and sometimes overbearing supervisory staff. The level of unpleasantness varied depending on the section of the laboratory you would be working in on any given day.
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) – Anchorage, AK – November 14, 2015
Design, development and implementation of occupational safety and health classes at the university level. Night adult education classes with broad demographics make for a challenging environment. Mostly three to four credit hour classes, one night a week.
Enjoy interaction and discussion with students.
Flexibility to conduct classes in the manner I choose
Director of Marketing and Communications (Current Employee) – Anchorage, AK – September 13, 2015
Exhilarating workplace watching students grow and develop in their respective fields. The school pride they exhibit is like non-other. Working here is rewarding watching the terrific outcomes that blossom. Family friendly atmosphere and supportive network is notable. If you work hard your work is praised and recognized.
Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Department Residence Life – June 4, 2015
See resume for job functions and responsibilities. Largest amount of co-workers I have had working for this facility. Emphasis in teamwork and communication. Enjoyed working with peers, coworkers, and other department workers within the University.
