Research Specialist Senior, CRC, Oncology Trials (Current Employee), Tucson, AZAugust 13, 2015
Pros: Benefits and job security
Cons: periods of feast or famine work loads.
I have leaned that good source documentation is critical. I have learn much about the oncology research pharmaceutical process. The co- workers are great and work well together to be a cohesive team. I have completed research oncology studies from initiation to closure in outpatient setting. It is an academic setting so plenty of politics and poor management skills.

Desk Assistant (Former Employee), TucsonAugust 5, 2015
Pros: My supervisor

I loved working here and learned so much from this place. It made me grow as a person and as a potential employee elsewhere. Shetara was a fantastic supervisor and was almost a "friend" to all of us undergraduate desk assistants. The environment was calm, friendly and always nurturing the knowledge seeker.

Great place, but no advancement
Research Programmer (Former Employee), Tucson, AZJuly 9, 2015
Pros: Relaxed enviroment, reasonable funding, excellent benefits.
Cons: Lack of raises in some departments.
Generally, the university is a great place to work. I worked for OSCR for a majority of the time but left after working for the CS department. Overall, I'd recommend it, but to get more money, you have to change jobs every few years as raises are difficult to come by.

Excellent Place to Grow
Engineer Associate (Former Employee), Tucson, AZJuly 1, 2015
Working at the University of Arizona has surrounded me with highly intellectual individuals who I benefit fro working alongside. All of my co-workers helped me in my personal growth and I hope to never lose their connection. The University of Arizona has many great opportunities especially in the space industry. I am currently working for the OCAMS team which is part of the OSIRIS-REx space mission. The only downside to working on projects like this is job security. Once this project is over, I am left to find another job and as far as I understand, it is typical that another project will not start for some time.

UofA South was an adventure
Program Coordinator (Former Employee), Tucson, ArizonaJune 27, 2015
Pros: Autonomy, opportunity to create, benefits, love the students
Cons: lack of support when we needed it
As a satellite campus, we had a lot of autonomy. As a new campus, there was a lot of room to be creative. On a typical day I would travel a lot, visiting the community college for recruiting. I might be training new employees or conducting a new student orientation. Every day was full, busy and I had a wide variety of responsibilities.

I learned that I could do many things. I loved the feeling of creating new initiatives and solving new problems.

Management was very distant and we were left on our own. Although we didn't always have the support we needed, we had a lot of autonomy. I enjoyed my co-workers and we had a strong team.

The hardest part of the job was that we were spread thin. We had two office sites and five community college recruiting sites and only six employees. Schedules were adjusted daily to compensate for absenteeism.

The most enjoyable part of my job was being in control of a new project/campus. I loved creating new initiatives and felt personal satisfaction in the success of the programs.
