Great experience; very professional but hampered by institutional paralysis

Current Employee - Cooperative Extention - Mid-management in Auburn, AL
Current Employee - Cooperative Extention - Mid-management in Auburn, AL

I have been working at Auburn University (more than an year)

Pros

"All in" is true. Supportive environment - culture is caring & inclusive. Many opportunities to learn and grow due to working on campus.

Cons

Institutional paralysis exists: change and decisons happen very slowly. Just too big to be flexible. Many old-timers adverse to change (growth). I would say that the pay is low, but even though the salary is relatively low, the benefits/perks are very high. Free tuition is a terrific benefit!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on strategic development to remain competitive.

    I have been working at Auburn University as an intern (more than an year)

    Former Employee - Assistant Professor in Auburn, AL
    Former Employee - Assistant Professor in Auburn, AL

    I worked at Auburn University full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent and ambitious colleagues among faculty and new visions provided by a few recent administrative hires

    Cons

    Overly dependent on state fiscal support, still burdened with legacy administration, practices, policies and organization, faculty remain on continuing path to becoming second-class citizens within context of administrative bloat and ineffectiveness, workloads far above regional average of peer institutions with correspondingly poor compensation and benefits across the majority of the workforce

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop independence from state budget shackles and modernize practice and approaches at all levels of the organization to increase efficiency, flexibility and responsiveness to overwhelming change in higher ed while ascribing to true standards of academic achievement and institutional prowess
