Team atmosphere where people are willing to take risk
Director of Campus Services (Current Employee) – North Dartmouth, MA – October 22, 2018
I have enjoyed my experience at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. It has given me the opportunity to develop my skill set and has challenged my abilities. I have been given the autonomy to grow the auxiliary areas which I found exciting. Working with staff who have a passion for what they do is important. I understand leadership is responsible for creating a culture of success. This mean transparency, willingness to take risk and sometimes fail and having integrity.

this is a great place to learn your basic abilities where it would help you to gain the needed experience to advance to the work environment, in a professional and social manner where it is working on developing you as a person in multiple scopes.

Staff Nurse - Charge nurse (Former Employee) – Worcester, MA – October 2, 2018
Great place to start - prepared very very well to move further in my career - got tons of experience . Had a great mentor as I was a very young nurse at the time and they really took the mission of teaching to a high level which helped me to become motivated and energized to move further in my career and create an energy to pursue a higher education
Graduate Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Lowell, MA – October 1, 2018
I specifically worked with the mathematical sciences department. I found my job as graduate teaching assistant to be about what I expected. Being a TA isn't glamorous, but I enjoyed working with the math department. Overall the group was friendly, professional, and they very clearly were oriented in the same direction with the same goals in mind.
Associate news editor (Former Employee) – Amherst, MA – September 27, 2018
A soul-killing culture completely lacking in imagination with no institutional memory. A fair amount of job security but far too many employee are force to fearfully hunker down in caves of mediocrity.
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – September 24, 2018
Studied in the UMASS Boston in Finance and Economics had provided me an unique opportunity in my logical-thinking ability and analytical skills. In addition, through the internship experience in the United States, I was trained with excellent communication and coordination skills and teamwork.
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Amherst, MA – August 14, 2018
Being a teaching assistant is terrible. I have little to say about this position that is not relatively obvious. UMass is a deeply underfunded institution, and its managers treat the public university like a private one. They treat their employees poorly across the board, and do everything in their power to weaken their employees' unions.
I didn't feel like I was able to do much as an intern and the rest of the team members were quite unorganized
Undergraduate Intern (Current Employee) – Worcester, MA – August 8, 2018
Since the staff was so unorganized, many days I would come in and do little to nothing of use with my time. It also took over a month for me to receive a paycheck, all the while paying weekly for parking.
when I was able to participate in research experiments, it was a good learning experience
There is another opportunity for you...SOMEWHERE ELSE
Graduate Assistant (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – August 6, 2018
This is a highly dysfunctional school and environment in all manners. The school has begun going through physical, financial, and administrative changes that will continue for the next 25 years according to their published plan. Unless you have tenure, you are eligible for the chopping block, including student positions. There is no simpler way to warn you that this school is not meant for anyone to go to, work at, or be associated with until it revives its good name. Until then, the cost of living near this campus will not justify your working there.
The school is surviving on its good name for now, so you can too.
Constant construction, no job security, no benefits, and high cost of living near.
