    I have been working at Cleveland State full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I love working with students at Cleveland State. The atmosphere of downtown Cleveland also makes Cleveland State an exciting place to work with the diversity of people, food, and entertainment.

    Cons

    One of the cons is that the pay is not comparable to pay at other institutions. Another con is unrealistic expectations placed on employees when staff is reduced.

    I worked at Cleveland State part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was a student technician in CSU's IS&T Department and it was the best job I could have as a student. Hours were flexible, the pay was OK, and the department even paid for training/certifications. My supervisors were great and very supporting to the student technicians. Many of the students would find an internship or co-op for a semester or so, and many of them came back to IS&T afterwards because most of us had a great relationship with our supervisors. I learned so much from this job and still use many of the skills I learned in IS&T today.

    Cons

    While there are smart and polite people in this department, a handful of the senior managers are complete morons who are disconnected from the rest of the department. Recently, they (sort of) fixed this and juggled them around to different areas. In addition, my supervisors' boss threatened to get rid of all the student workers at least once a year. Good luck supporting all faculty and staff computing equipment when your student workers (about 20 technicians) that do your heavy-lifting and dirty work are gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - If you have a political agenda, drop it and maybe people will want to work with you.
    - Respect your student workers. Many of them are just getting by and still manage to do all your dirty work, help the faculty and staff everyday with computer problems, and they are only part-time workers.
    - Keep offering training to your workers at all levels.

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

    Pros

    My schedule was flexible and conducive with my school schedule. The work environment was clean and safe. Great place to work.

    Cons

    Salary was not so good and work hours could be long. If you are not willing to do some tedious tasks and deal with long waiting periods this may not be the job for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing!
