Biosafety Officer (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – September 30, 2017
Poor management of laboratory safety, antiquated and inadequate training for laboratory personnel, inappropriate enforcement of safety regulations, dangerously inadequate incident response, HIPPA violations … and the list goes on. The complete lack of communication and coordination of the various safety units at UA leave both students and lab personnel at risk. The directors are fully aware of the issue.
o Proficiently communicate the concepts of “Business Intelligence” & “Enterprise Data Management” to large audience o Assist the professor and faculty to design course content, evaluate assignments, projects and exams o Employed cooperative methods to enhance student interaction and conduct lab sessions for hands-on experience

I.T. Project Manager (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – September 13, 2017
Given that it has elements of business development alongside the public scholarship and research (the medical and law schools still are distinctive as well), one should expect diversity in approach and compensation to not be lower when compared to private sector operations. Such hopes should be generally dismissed. As well, the idea that such positions are secure is no longer true... perhaps more secure, but not very much more.
Assistant Director (Current Employee) – unidentified unit – September 11, 2017
UA is a huge place--how your job actually is as far as stress, quality of management, pace, work atmosphere etc. will vary immensely depending on what department you're in and who your manager(s) is/are. The only across-the-board reality is that the benefits are hard to beat, in terms of insurance and time off (especially in an appointed, as opposed to classified, position).
Grader (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – September 11, 2017
I really liked my job, but I was a grader, so it was temporary. I was responsible for grading for more than 100 students and I'd never done it before, so it was a little overwhelming. Still, I really liked the professor, the class material was interesting, and it was a really fun job if you're a nerd, which I am. I would definitely recommend it if you need some extra money, you enjoy reading and writing, and you're an experienced tutor.
Legal Assistant Senior (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – September 5, 2017
It was hard for me to decide to leave my previous employer and move the University of Arizona. The management and the staff in the office made it an easy adjustment. They were always available for questions and to assist when needed. It was a fun atmosphere to work in.
Productive, Professional and Awesome place to work
