Former Employee - Research Assistant in Flint, MI
Former Employee - Research Assistant in Flint, MI

I worked at Kettering University as an intern (more than an year)

Pros

Got to use lab instrumentation regularly and extensively. Was not micro-managed while researching. Great overall experience and great place to gain lab experience.

Cons

Well, it's Flint... Also, it's a bit like grad school in that I would go and work late at night, but that is the nature of research!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Help students get other jobs our move on when the time comes to do so.

    Former Employee - Manager in Flint, MI
    Former Employee - Manager in Flint, MI

    I worked at Kettering University full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    As the former GMI the school is in the top ten for engineering and known world wide. The benefit package is great. Allotted time off is another perk.

    Cons

    Wages are poor and way below national average for position. Too much micromanaging by upper management. Those who work and dedicate themselves to the institute are not rewarded. Very poor communication and leadership. Those who don't work to their potential are not disciplined. No follow though with upper management with issues or concerns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow managers to manage and have upper management concentrate on increasing enrollment. instead upper management goes over the department manager's head without their knowledge and re direct their department duties or projects.

    Former Employee - Marketing - Communications in Flint, MI

    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.
