Great University & Work Environment
Director of Alumni Clubs & Councils (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PAJuly 16, 2014
As a two-time graduate of Pitt, it's very easy to love working for the University especially in an alumni relations capacity.

We have a great working environment with varied challenges and experiences. I've had the opportunity to meet some of the most incredible people via my time here and I work with a fun set of coworkers and supervisors.

I truly – more... enjoy promoting the alumni networks around the country and keeping alumni engaged with the University!

Pros: strengthened my knowledge of aids, as well as got me to visit many areas in the state that i may not have seen otherwise.

While employed with the PA AIDS Education I was part of a team who were grant funded. We were educating the public about AIDS. I was typing the presentation, copying and putting binders together for the participants. We scheduled the presenters, as well as made their travel arrangements. We accepted payment and balanced as necessary. We traveled to – more... the site and ensured that the presentation was fine tuned. We pre-arranged lunch and snacks for the participants and presenters. We allowed the participants to provide us feedback as well. – less

Case Manager, Social Work Intern (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PAMarch 23, 2014
Pros: opportunities for growth
Cons: large institution, complicated hierarchy
I would recommend the University of Pittsburgh as an employer. As a large institution there are numerous opportunities for growth and development. Unfortunately, as with any job, work life balance is questionable depending on your supervisor, however, overall, I believe that many supervisors understand the importance of this issue and encourage it.
