    Going through major changes

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBenefits are good, small school offers more opportunity to work more with students

    ConsToxic environment due to past mismanagement, most employees do the minimum to get by, no consistency so students are allowed to get away with anything

    Advice to Senior ManagementConcentrate on supporting those who do, instead of trying to keep the status quo. Utilize technology and train all employees, regardless of rank. Hold people responsible to their job duties, but recognize those who go beyond

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I once was employed until laidoff, due to Management had a discrepancy against me.

    Administrative Support Assistance (Former Employee)

    ProsThe opportunity to assist students and parents to reach their individual goals. The university is in a good place for the rural communities to receive a 4 year degree.

    ConsThere is alot of friendships in higher places that lookout for their friends and family.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should talk to the person that's doing the position instead of asking the department head. Management should not be lying on employee.

    The leadership and lack of experience in critical positions

    Director of Administrative Computing (Former Employee)
    Elizabeth City, NC

    ProsMid size University that have one of one connections with students.

    ConsPromotions are not too common, some of leadership are not the correct fit for the Institution, when failures happen, no reviews are given to that leadership team, but keep repeating the same actions and getting the same results. Often times it is seen as incompetence is king, and competence is denigrated.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA lot of times you manage on familiarity breeds contempt. You should except employees with talent, skills, experience, and education, not on personal feelings or emotional feelings.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Prosvery quite place to work so you don't have to worry about being distracted all the time. thats a good reason.

    ConsI think that a con is that you have people wanting to do things the same way as before so...

    Advice to Senior Managementjust more communication would be nice and that definitely would not hurt. there is a lot of potential in the management.
