    I have been working at Columbia Southern University full-time (more than an year)


    The company has great benefits to employees and they do a great job taking the cost burden off the employees. The time off is terrific, no other company allows employees to take their birthday off as well as have paid event days. While the job requires some off hours work, most of the time it is an 8-5 job that allows employees to spend time with their families and even continue their education. The department I currently work in has allowed for a lot of personal growth and development. There is a lot of training opportunities for departments and employees! One unique aspect is that the upper level management is seen, they aren't locked in their offices but instead out talking to the employees


    Pay could use a bit of an increase - although the time off and benefits help ease that a little. Every company has some bad eggs and I think due to the environment/culture those individuals have more of a voice than they would in any other company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with employees at all levels and departments. With three separate buildings its easy for staff to get disconnected from one another.
