    I have been working at Colorado School of Mines full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Hours, Many of the faculty were easy to work with. Most of the students are understanding. If you needed to be in the area they were o to let you do your job.

    Cons

    The hierarchy of the Facilities Management are more concerned about office politics than their employees. Instead of running a facility like they wanted work done correctly. They were more concerned about if anyone was offending anyone else. A true PC witch hunt with more of a "don't say anything" or your likely to be fired atmosphere than of a higher education facility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The place truly could be better. Try to sing a little common sense. Not everything anyone says should be viewed as 100% negative. There is such a thing as positive feedback but you rarely view it as such.

    Pros

    Excellent benefit package and balance of work life. Great location and community.

    Cons

    Limited to non existant opportunities for professional growth or promotion due to the restrictive state rules surrounding hiring practices of classified employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Opt out of the state system.
