    ProsGood place to study. Very peaceful and quite environment. Everyone is friendly in jonesboro and it makes the place a good place to stay.

    ConsSome 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.

    Graduate Assistant

    Graduate Assistant (Former Employee) Jonesboro, AR

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

    ConsNo benefits, wages are relatively low, more leadership is needed, slow-paced environment, bureaucracy is overwhelming.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Lots of potential, mediorcre management

    Administrative Staff (Current Employee) Jonesboro, AR

    ProsA 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

    ConsAcademics 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 Senior ManagementDecide 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
