    Current Employee - Computer Technician in Montgomery, AL

    I have been working at Alabama State University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Calm atmosphere and good employees. The health benefits are very good, but not great. To advance in salary you have to acquire a different title, they are not good at giving performance raises. You get 8 hours per month of annual leave and 8 hours of sick leave. After so many years you get 10 hours per month and then it goes to 15 hours per month.

    Cons

    Job growth is limited unless you are faculty.

    I worked at Alabama State University

    Pros

    Some of the people are great people trying to do their jobs to the best of their ability

    Cons

    Environment is corrupt from top to bottom.
    You'll find efforts to move up stopped because of petty politics.
    Poor hires from board assures again that the unqualified rise to the top and the qualified either leave or remain in positions where their influence is limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making the primary focus paying back your friends.
    Focus on the quality of education you are delivering.

    I worked at Alabama State University as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Mission is admirable, yet the majority of the people providing services don't care about students, colleagues or the institution.

    Cons

    Too many people want to maintain low standards of excellence. The problem areas/people are obvious, yet leadership doesn't address these liabilities. It won't get better until the status quo is challenged and people are held accountable for their poor performance!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wishing the new president the best with this challenging culture. Please embrace diversity and begin to create a healthy culture so students can thrive and the best of your staff and faculty aren't driven out... so many are already gone!

    Pros

    It is a good place to work if you have children.

    Cons

    Does not pay well and hard to advance if you don't rub elbows with the right people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should promote based on skills and qualifications, not who a person knows.
