I worked at Ferris State University

Pros

They put school first in most instances and give you time for homework and classes. Also, conveniently located between classes.

Cons

Treated like a student at the job. Don't feel respected, nor do you feel like the supervisors or managers deserve respect.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It'd be nice to treat student employees more fairly. Too much favoritism between supervisors and managers to really get any work done.

    Pros

    Great hours, and lots of vacation. Great people to talk to and very easy to get settled in at your position

    Cons

    Low pay, lots of inter department drama and mass confusion. Plenty of crazy budget cuts along with many people looking to point fingers for it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make management salary higher while scanning employees better to have better workers. Adjust budget to compensate for athletic teams and funding

    Pros

    It is really a community environment at Ferris State University. The small town makes for an environment where it is easy to get to know people. They are flexible with time off and half days when you need to take care of personal business.

    Cons

    The small town can sometimes limit people in their personal and professional growth. There is a limit to how far you can go at a University of this size.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They can do a better job of providing assistants to departments in need. I know they do a lot of shifting around to save jobs but leave some departments hanging with out a lot of support for the department.
