    I have been working at Kettering University full-time

    Pros

    I worked in IT at Kettering University and obtained valuable work experience. Kettering University offers competitive benefits including: 403(b), discounted health insurance, paid time off, sick time, 1.5 weeks off for the Christmas holiday, tuition assistance (up to $5,250), free parking and free recreation center access.

    Cons

    Kettering University has not given or offered its employees a raise in over 8 years. Kettering University which was formerly General Motors Institute is struggling to establish its brand. Therefore, low student enrollment and retention is a pitfall for the University. Even with great individual performance don't expect to get a bonus or a raise.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully President Dr. McMahan can help move Kettering University forward.

    I worked at Kettering University full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great working with the students

    Cons

    It is a Private University, so any increased funding (tuition) is not used for salaries. Have laid off in both 2010 and 2012

    Advice to Management

    Consider Morale of all emmployees
