grounds and maintenance (Current Employee), New Haven, CTApril 11, 2013
Pros: befenfits.
Cons: management and how they treat poeple
I have worked here for some time now. I have seen my joy of going to work vanish. Bosses now will yell at you, belittle you in front of anyone. Management uses all types of intimidation. They don’t care about safety until someone gets hurt. You would think that a place like this would have a very high stander and would not treat people like they do. – more... Forget about HR they are no help. I watch a man loss a week of pay because a co-worker was harassing him. He reported it shop stewart, his boss, then to HR. HR then suspended both of them. Most co-workers are great but the best part of the day is when it is over, or weekends when management is not around. – less

Projectionist (Current Employee), New Haven, CTMarch 23, 2013
Pros: the job is rewarding because i am an avid film lover
Cons: not enough hours
I am a casual part time worker. I work for the Film Study Center Department. I am responsible for preparing films and digital media for movie showings in coordination with classroom schedules. Next I operate the equipment and run the movies according to the schedules. I have two co-workers. One has taken a full time position doing the job I described – more... plus some other added responsibilities. My other co-worker is a casual part time worker like myself. – less

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), New Haven, CTMarch 5, 2013
Pros: loved this job, quite challenging at times. benefits were fabulous.
Cons: pay was low but benefits made up for it.
Busy day working for so many full-time professors and part-time professors, most were easy to get along with others very demanding. My co-workers worked with other professors but when needed, were very helpful and nice. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that my day was very productive.

Morgue Technician (Former Employee), New Haven, CTFebruary 11, 2013
Pros: great staff, learn a lot
Typical day includes paperwork and autopsies. Learned how to accession patients, assist with autopsies, clean and prepare instruments, etc. Management was great and helpful! Co-workers were fun and enjoyable. Hardest part was preparing all paperwork. Most enjoyable part was doing an autopsy and learning something new everyday.

Account Assistant IV (Former Employee), New Haven, CTJanuary 19, 2013
Pros: great benefits, comfortable environment
Cons: having to know the logic of all jobs from the front end, so that we as patient service reps could correct the errors on the back end
Upon arrival to work in the mornings, there is a feeling of eagerness to get to work and begin the workday. Seeing that you work independently there is a sense of individual accountability for your work performance. There is also an underlying awareness of teamwork to provide the best customer service experience. Management not only makes themselves – more... available at all times but also has great knowlege of the job that you do, so much so that they jump in and assist during staff shortge and high work volume moments. Employee's strengths are recognized by co-workers as well as mangement and utilized. The capability to multi-task is a must and expected. I enjoyed providing a quality experience to our customers/patients and representing my company and myself meticulously well – less
