Mixed Review for Adjunct Professors in the Arts and Sciences
Adjunct Faculty (Current Employee) –  Storrs, CTOctober 16, 2018
Though working as an adjunct professor and/or lecturer at the University of Connecticut is relatively easy/flexible and with some autonomy, the salary, or pay per course, renders the job a non-starter. As per the state of Connecticut law, adjuncts are only allowed to teach up to eight credit hours per semester; therefore, it is difficult to endorse working for the University of Connecticut in an adjunct/instructor professor role. Furthermore, it is unfortunate that UConn's graduate students (without a PhD) have a significantly better salary package (which includes health and dental benefits) than that of their Adjunct faculty.
Pros
Relative autonomy and decent support depending on department
Cons
Poor pay, difficult location

Resident Assistant (Former Employee) –  Storrs, CTOctober 8, 2018
Great job for students to have when you are considering just the benefits. Room and board was covered under the RA position which was a nice benefit to have, however, it did come at a sacrifice when it came to work life balance, however, if you enjoy helping people you will find joy in this job.

Everybody has an issue with one another for no reason, just politics. Make certain to do your job, and stay focus on what you have to do. Every departments has their eyes on each others budget.

A great place to work in because everyone got along and looked out for each other. Never dreaded having to go in and put in a shift. Opening and closing the labs where easy enough due to the two wonderful woman who ran the place.

motivated and excited polymer chemist.
Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee) –  Storrs, CTSeptember 6, 2018
My typical day starts from 6am and sometimes runs to late night. Learnt quite a lot in polymer synthesis and characterization. Being a graduate research assistant my work requires personal will and focused to the task. The hardest part is during summer when the pay is not enough to cater for all the bills and at the same time you are required to work. The most exciting part is when you synthesize new functional materials.

Director of Admissions and Recruitment (Former Employee) –  Storrs, CTAugust 21, 2018
A university that truly puts students first and understands that to meet that goal, you have to treat your employees well. UCONN is a family and if you are fortunate enough to get in, you are welcomed warmly.
