    I worked at Eastern Kentucky University full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits: Insurance, holidays, time-off, free tuition and then vacation you may not be able to use because you've already been off 2 weeks for Christmas, a week for Spring Break, etc. Academic atmosphere which encourages independent thought and a youthful, hopeful energy you won't find elsewhere.

    Cons

    Funding and budgets determine raises. Years without a raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage job advancement within the institution.

    I have been working at Eastern Kentucky University

    Pros

    Good people - The hierarchy is pretty approachable and open to new ideas. There seems to be some good changes taking place and Eastern needs to capitalize on thier strengths and continue to seek out quality students and invest in them staying. The retirement plan is very good, and the benefits are not bad as well. Free parking for employees is a plus, but parking nazis need help with customer service!

    Cons

    The infrastructre of the University needs work and quality of students is low. Eastern really needs to invest in more mentoring and personal contact with students, not more in electronic resources, which is very impersonal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    think forward for retention and don't hesitate to hire outside people enough money to bring new ideas.
