Pros

Work schedule, state paid holidays, employee tuition assistance program, promotion of higher learning, and ability to take courses and earn degrees

Cons

Lack of support from upper management, severe favoritism towards employees, lack of accountability, horrible and outdated processes, lack of empathy and care for students, obsession with quantity-not quality, inappropriate behavior, confidentiality breaches, unethical behavior on all levels, and severe lack of employee and student retention. Employee morale is at an all time low, and lower level salaried/hourly employees have not had a raise in 5 years, but faculty members in the high pay brackets continue to obtain raises.

Advice to Management

Learn your job. Do not pass off your responsibilities on the employees who actually display an above average work ethic - hint: that is why you lose them! Show some accountability and back bone, and reprimand your subordinates who display lackluster job performance, and lackadaisical attitudes. Do your job.

    It was rarely productive and did not prepare me for advancement in my chosen major of field.

    I worked at Armstrong Atlantic State University

    Pros

    -great community feel and the faculty are a gem. The lower-level staff also make work really fun and exciting.

    Cons

    -not really student focused and could use some work on making students a priority.
    -information tech systems are horrible and really need to be updated

    Advice to Management

    Focus on students and make training opportunities more available for employees. I would also suggest allowing employees to attend more committee meetings.
