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

Pros

Small campus - you get to know everyone just like family, including the students. Some of the perks are great, such as the rec center - and having access to use it

Cons

Just like family - there's usually a bad seed. Low pay, very little advancement. New administration is making changes frequently and creating a very unsettled work environment. Location - Flint, MI.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be nicer to loyal employees when realigning and outsourcing their jobs.

    Great place for new college grads. Horrible place for growth.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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