Former Employee - Graduate Research Assistant in Muncie, IN

I worked at Ball State as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

As a research assistant, I had a lot of room to define my own goals. I had access to state of the art technology. I had a top notch professor who guided me with an open hand.

Cons

There is no such thing as work life balance. All of the Graduate Assistants were walking zombies who slept only every few nights.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sustainability concepts should include social systems.

    Former Employee - FULL PROFESSOR in Muncie, IN

    I worked at Ball State full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Tries hard to be cutting edge in technology and has instituted creative collaborative capstone projects for students.

    Cons

    Administration is short-sighted and often overlooks creative work being done by faculty that is not only aimed at creating a 'big buzz' but enhances fields in traditional ways as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees more carefully. There is frustration with the aggressive top-down management style.
