    Some of the challenges I faced is the transportation system here. there are no buses and sometimes it makes it difficult to go somewhere if you are in international student. The school provides transport on limited days though.

    Former Employee - Graduate Assistant in Jonesboro, AR

    I worked at Arkansas State University part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Work-life balance is OK, in general advisors are good, encouraging, and most people are pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    No benefits, wages are relatively low, more leadership is needed, slow-paced environment, bureaucracy is overwhelming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The University needs to be more dynamic, more leaders are needed to move this big University. The University produces good professionals that could be retained to build a stronger institution in terms or administration and academically.

    Current Employee - Administrative Staff in Jonesboro, AR

    I have been working at Arkansas State University full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A higher ed institution in the Delta with great potential to advance
    Many bright, devoted faculty from across the US
    Laid-back environment, personable and friendly

    Cons

    Academics in management/administration who are the people they can get to take the job for the lowest salary, with NO regard for their management skills or (lack) of vision.
    Little room for professional advancement.
    Many "seat warmer" employees who perform little and still get paid while high performers are often overlooked
    Current chancellor is very isolated; disconnected from faculty and staff (even deans) of all departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide to invest in your staff members and their professional development. Lose the low performers. You'll get much more for your money in the long-run.
