    This is a great place to work! I love the people and the benefits are great. At least in my department, everyone is treated with respect and given plenty of opportunities to learn and better themselves.

    Parking can be a challenge depending on what's going on on campus.

    I have been working at East Tennessee State full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of paid time off, flexible hours, training opportunities, fully funded education, health insurance and retirement options decent, yearly bonus for being vested, on-site food services, hour lunch breaks, no time clock, free use of workout facilities

    Cons

    Pay is below average, Very few opportunities to move up, Not much structure, departments don't coordinate well, must pay for parking, change is very slow, new positions do not open very frequently

    Advice to Management

    Vet candidates for new positions more thoroughly, push for more senior/junior level positions, enact policies using professional industry standards, take security seriously, collaborate with other institutions on best practices

    I worked at East Tennessee State full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I learned a lot of valuable skills in the lab I worked in. It was fun but a lot of hard work and I wish I would have earned a bit more for the time I was there and my efficiency and work output.

    Cons

    As with some universities, there is some dead weight as far as tenured faculty who don't do anything sucking the life out of some departments. The new chair of Biomedical Sciences is very closed minded for being a scientist.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly if you work hard and are nice to people you will do well.

    Pros

    Hours are the best being able to work from your room. Great leadership opportunities.

    Cons

    The housing office needs new management. Most are 30-40+ years older than students and are so out of touch. None of my suggestions on how to update housing for this generation of students seem to be heard.

    Advice to Management

    Get new -top- management that has been in college in the last ten years and let them make drastic changes. Also, no one cares about bulletin boards except for you!

    Pros

    Less stressful. Good people to work with. Long summer and winter break

    Cons

    Very underpaid. Tight budgets now. Not many good collaboration opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    The university spent too much money on different projects, e.g, bell tower, lawn, etc. Need to have a good long run strategy. Invest more money on faculty and good students. Raise the salary of faculty, reduce teaching load so that they could do more research to bring good students and receive more grant.
