    I have been working at CSU Stanislaus full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There are events going on regularly around campus that are great ways to bond with fellow coworkers. Your work positively impacts the lives and education of thousands of students. Very relaxed work atmosphere.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be hard to coordinate with other members of the campus community, there are only so many meetings that I can take.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look into more open and interactive ways to collaborate around campus. Meetings can really slow down projects.

    I kind of liked it at first, but after new management and group of employees came in, everything went downhill.

    I worked at CSU Stanislaus part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice staff when I came in. I got to know the contributions of community members around the university. The old staff got well together and really liked each other for the most part - since we really worked as a team and sometimes felt like a family.

    Cons

    New management/staff that came in - Almost everyone left/got fired in our department, they hired about 10 new employees to replace the old ones (when they said they were lacking funds). The culture changed which led to more selfishness around the department (employees passing the "dirty work" to lower employees and so on just to 'cover' themselves and other unfair treatment). Most new employees lacked communication and expected to lead projects with just leaving sticky notes, copy&pasted emails, or bossing/demanding things from other people around at the last minute. This then felt a burden on me and they got aggravated when things didn't go their way (go figure). The 3 years I worked there, only a quarter raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More fairness, treat everyone the same, encourage promotions and salary raises, more respect. Be available for more 'to the point' meetings when discussing projects.

    I have been working at CSU Stanislaus full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best thing about teaching at CSU Stanislaus is the student body. Most are first generation college students, work to support themselves financially, have strong connections to family and friends and struggle to balance work, family and school. They participate in class and seek to learn something meaningful while getting educated for ethical jobs.

    Cons

    A very bureaucratic university, resistant to innovation, highly adversarial faculty-admin relations in a state in continual budget crisis and little support from the public. No support for research, but considered part of your job and expected. Pay raises practically nonexistent. Salaries flat since 1998.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the campus climate and support the faculty.

    I worked at CSU Stanislaus as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Gain valuable experience, a private office to work on your thesis and conduct office hours for students and access to the printer which is very integral to a grad student.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the pay is so low that it doesn't even cover the gas money to get to and from school. So basically this is a volunteer job or internship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please pay the TA's more money so that they will be more motivated.

    Pros

    The benefits, you get taken care of for life

    Cons

    People are friendly and semi helpful. If it is not in your job duty, you shouldn't be helping anyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most say they work in a Team environment, but it is not. People are on their toes constantly and do not feel comfortable in the team setting. This is not for all departments, just one in particular.
