I worked at Arizona State University full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Wide variety of programs and many fine professors and inquiring students. Benefits good.

Cons

Salary can be crazily low w/no COLA for years on end. Main problem is that some administrators and profs who brown-nose the top executives lord it over other self-respecting faculty and staff and get the lion's share of resources and perks. Crow and Co. play favorites and spend lavishly on a few star professors while letting salaries stagnate for the large majority who actually keep academic programs going.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go back to Columbia, Crow, and get replaced by someone with a human touch and fewer Ivy League pretensions along the lines of Coor or Nelson

    You can have great colleagues and take comfort in your unit but you will not find support in the university, nor a raise

    I have been working at Arizona State University

    Pros

    Some clearly excellent faculty and dedicated staff work at ASU. The graduate student population is excellent and rewarding to work with.

    Cons

    The overpaid and oversized administration is disenfranchising to faculty on their best days and utterly demoralizing on their worst. Some small growth in capacity for building faculty collaboration have occurred but are managed by marginally capable administrators in tempe and the other campuses are sweat shops with libraries given their distillation to the lowest common denominator of using hourly undergraduate workers paid to help online classes scale up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually listen to employees. Slow the growth of administration. Failed hires in the Athletic Dept have left the university on the hook for a decade of failure in any revenue sports area and paying coaches and former Athletic Directors we should have fired but instead granted them contract extensions before firing them.
