Low end of the salary scale, even compared to other CSU campuses.'

    I have been working at CSU Monterey Bay part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Dedicated, engaged faculty, committed to student development. Even routine activites like department meeting are well attended, and when academic changes are made, they are accompanied by lively and thoughtful debate.

    Cons

    Administrative systems are needlessly complex and serve to demotivate staff. Admins soend an inordinate fraction of their time on repetitive, unnecessary tasks that in many instances could be made unnecessary by simple things such as online forms that could be signed and submitted electronically.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Research other similar institutions and adapt more efficient prcesses to CSUMB's needs. Reduce the amount of physical paper and the number of signatures needed for most administrative procedures for students such as schedule changes (e.g. adding and dropping classes).
