    I have been working at Arizona State University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - ASU is a well-known higher education institution in the nation - offers tuition waiver to employees and their immediate family members - great for student employees - relatively flexible working hours (depends on the position)

    Cons

    - very political - working with people who are entitled - limited growth opportunities - very low salary and hard to get a raise (doesn't matter if you have a master's degree)

    I worked at Arizona State University full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    good security with great benefits. Positive working conditions. Many paid holidays and great feeling working with young people.and interesting challenges.

    Cons

    Teaching young people requires stamina and demandin planning skills. Preparing lesson plans that will reach every learning level. Most important is getting along with other teachers and adhering to administrative rules. Teamwork is the key word.

    Advice to Management

    Flexibility and empathy are very important traits. Firm but fair is peramount in management. The attitude determans altitude , will permeate from the top down to the entry level positions.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Arizona State University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pros at ASU include greate benefits, tuition waiver, and a handful of holidays off. Other than these, it's a difficult environment and commuting to/from campus is a big challenge unless it's summer.

    Cons

    Very poor managements, no support for employees/subordinates both professionally or when needing backup or assistance with a non-routine task. It's very possible that there are good departments and schools to work in, but there are also very bad, toxic ones. This is only my opinion from where I worked. Another BIG con is the pay. The benefits are why you work at ASU, not the pay check.

    Advice to Management

    Please, please let your employees know that they're doing a good job and thank them occasionally. This does more than you think and it's a simple thing to do. It motivates them and we want to work harder for you instead of being scolded publicly via email. A little appreciation and guidance goes a long way!

    I worked at Arizona State University part-time

    Pros

    I worked here as a student worker and it was a student job which varies from department to department but my experience was good.

    Cons

    I worked here as a student worker and it was a student job which varies from department to department but there was not really a way to make it a full-time job

    Advice to Management

    Please make it known to full-time employees that student workers have names and do not like to be referred to as "my student worker" to others.

    Pros

    Stable job, decent benefits. Many great people to work with. The team I worked with before leaving were great people.

    Cons

    Salary ranges seem low. No growth potential. Only way to move up is to transfer positions within ASU and if you do, your pay increase is limited to 10% of your current salary. Also have to pay for parking out of your pay check.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees proper salary and give periodic bonuses/raises to keep them there. Also, let the employees park for free.
