I Love the University of Virginia
SYSTEMS SENIOR ENGINEER, COMPUTER ENGINEER (Former Employee), Charlottesville, VAJuly 6, 2014
This is a beautiful place to work, if you can get past the politics, and manage to get under the right management team.

A typical day in HR evolved over the course of the 10 years I was there.

Initially, we maintained our own Windows Domain, security, Remote Access, Email system, etc. We always supported end users and their requests for help with – more... software, hardware, connectivity (including VPNs and Oracle db.) I also took care of the telecom requests and inventory, generated end-user documentation and handouts, disaster recovery plans, desktop imaging, centralized antivirus administration, multimedia, classroom and conference room setups, including multimedia production for video\audio recording and editing to be posted on the web or distributed on disc. In the early days, I also rewrote our Service Awards Microsoft Access database, and worked closely with the project manager throughout the annual process.

Once the decision was made to turn over management of our domain to central IT, we were almost entirely in request mode only. From there, I continued with end-user and classroom support, but also maintained the HIPAA and IT Security, as well as SSN and PI remediation for the entire department. I also took care of the Division of Training's online system; a ColdFusion system with Access and Oracle database backends. I administered the Access db's while only involved with connectivity to the Oracle system.

I enjoyed the work I did, the people I worked with, and the users I supported very much. I enjoyed the opportunities for education when they were possible.

Unfortunately, along with the souring of the economy came an intense souring of the work environment. I look forward to seeing what the new CEO is able to do with great hope. I would Love to return to UVa, when the time and circumstances are right. – less

Power Plant Operations Shift Supervisor, Senior (Current Employee), Charlottesville, VAMay 31, 2014
Pros: managers welcome you with open door policy.
Cons: benefits and salary need some improvement.
Very nice place to work that allows you to take ownership of facilities and praises you for ideas that improve efficiency or contribute to making the University a better place to work. Very little chance for advancement, usually hire from outside. Raises in compensation are
intermittent.

A lot of freedom to pursue own research interests, however, that also means little guidance when in need of it. Great place to do graduate research.

UVA
Billing Specialist (Current Employee), Charlottesville, VAApril 15, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Cons: no voice
Work with limited to no supervision. Immediate supervisor is the best support. Awesome co-workers. Hardest part of the job is getting people to follow instructions and take accountability for their actions or lack thereof. The most enjoyable part of the job is the flexibility and independence.

Pros: non micromanagement
a typical day at work consited of providing the best level of customer service

I learned how to give outstanding customer service even during stressful situations.

Management was very hands off and trusted their employees to complete their tasks.

the hardest part about the job was having to stand the duration of your shift.

the most enjoyable part – more... of the job was customer interactions and providing such great customer service. Smiling and making their stay as enjoyable as possible. – less
