Ferris State University Office Manager

Office Manager (Current Employee)
Big Rapids, MI

ProsIt 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.

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementThey 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
