Pros

Generous vacation days, academic setting, diverse amiable staff, tuition reimbursement, generous retirement match after two years service

Cons

No merit pay increases, few to no advancement opportunities, low tech out dated office equipment and procedures, entrenched management that resist changing to meet present day realities. Employee healthcare contribution increases every year without salary increases.

Advice to Management

Instead of requesting employees across the board to do more with less and providing low/no university wide salary increases, implement smarter streamlined processes and provide merit pay increases to hardworking, respected staff and faculty members.

    Pros

    Great tuition benefits for self, spouse and dependents if they wish to study at a so-so university. Use of the fitness center and library is beneficial. Aiding students and others in need of service may be a good job duty. When the university is closed, the work load is less.

    Cons

    For public safety officers, it is a boring position opening and closing university buildings. Most shifts require sitting in a security guard booth. There are ten hours shifts. And working a midnight shift is harmful to an employees' health. Shift workers lose sleep and have loss of time with family. it is a cat and mouse game all school year chasing underage students drinking alcohol and at times using illegal drugs. Vandalism and auto accident reports are common offenses at the university.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the 50% turnover rate. Create a career path so workers value their jobs. The new provost: Peter Woolley stated for workers to deal with the frustrations of the job which is not a healthy attitude for workers. Retraining new workers is high expense for the university.
