Campus, people great. No advancement opportunities
Tradesman (Former Employee) – Boulder, CO – April 8, 2017
Campus is very nice and co-workers are friendly. If your aspirations of advancement then this is not the place for you. They promote the least qualified people based on if they agree with management and not question procedures but have no clue of what they are doing. Yes men will thrive in this environment. Co-workers feelings get hurt extremely easy and that will be documented on your yearly evaluation. Salary's are extremely low compared to outside contractors in the skilled trades but benefits are good. No salary increases due to lack of funding from state. Some co-workers do not contribute to daily work or don't care and that burdens others to carry them without any discipline. The positives are time off, nice scenery, people are friendly. P.S. you have to pay to park, that will cost you $500 to $600 a year (minus that from your already low salary). Three key employees have left over the past 2 years in the skilled trades.
Opportunities for growth and professional development
Coordinator of Programs and Services (Current Employee) – Aurora, CO – April 7, 2017
Non-faculty personnel are responsible for own identification and pursuit of professional development. High racial and gender bias across campus, including for students. Very few person's of color / women of color in roles of high responsibility or leadership; minimal respect for the front line / worker-bee staff; high interest in doing more with less at the expense of personnel.
Graduate Teaching Assistant (Current Employee) – Boulder, CO – April 4, 2017
Holding office hours and teaching new concepts was a great learning experience for me. It was enjoyable where I got to interact with students and clarify their doubts and also learn new things in the process.
Learned a lot and was great experience for research
Research Assistant-Internship (Former Employee) – Aurora, CO – March 28, 2017
The culture of the workplace was one that was very friendly where everyone was willing to help you if you needed it. Also everyone I met there was very driven and passionate about a certain topic and it was fun and interesting learning about their projects as I worked on mine.
Assistant Professor (Current Employee) – Aurora, CO – March 28, 2017
Great place! Great medical school! Nice location.I have been working for this school for almost 15 years. I feel like it's a home for me. I want to change my career for some special reasons, not because I don't like it anymore.
team member in the Facilities Department (Former Employee) – Colorado – March 16, 2017
Would manage lawns, take care of equipment, and enjoy the scenic views that Boulder has to offer. Arrive at work 7am daily, work till 1140 and break for a forty minute lunch then get back to work. Each day had a specific job that would be focused on. This was simply because lawns, bushes and landscapes grow quickly.
Computer Lab Assistant (Former Employee) – Boulder, CO – March 14, 2017
Typical day would be working with students and learned people have different views in life. The time management is important. The work culture was just working with computers and students. The hardest part of job was when I did not understand proper way to deal with things that I did not understand.
Student-Athlete (Current Employee) – Boulder – March 9, 2017
As a student-athlete, I must continuously practice not only my physical skills, but time management, multi-tasking, and above all resiliency. Balancing practice, classes, and student-organizations is challenging; however, learning the value of preparation and planning has helped me overcome many challenges. Competing at the PAC-12 level is physically and mentally demanding, but applying those valuable skills I learned through athletics directly adds value to my academic organization and creativity.
