I have been working at Eastern Kentucky University

Pros

Good people - The hierarchy is pretty approachable and open to new ideas. There seems to be some good changes taking place and Eastern needs to capitalize on thier strengths and continue to seek out quality students and invest in them staying. The retirement plan is very good, and the benefits are not bad as well. Free parking for employees is a plus, but parking nazis need help with customer service!

Cons

The infrastructre of the University needs work and quality of students is low. Eastern really needs to invest in more mentoring and personal contact with students, not more in electronic resources, which is very impersonal.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

think forward for retention and don't hesitate to hire outside people enough money to bring new ideas.

    I have been working at Eastern Kentucky University full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    My office at least is friendly and cooperative. The campus culture is polite and friendly. Benefits are decent, not Silicon Valley-level, but good. Pay isn't bad for essentially a government gig.

    Cons

    Frozen pay, budget woes, the irrationality inherent to bureaucracy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Branding isn't as important as quality, but I can see where perception takes precedence.
