I worked at Metro State University of Denver part-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Amazing staff to work for, great location, great hours flexibility, great environment, great sociability of the management staff, and exceptionally well kept offices.

Cons

The hours that you can get scheduled to work as a work study or student hourly caps at about 30 hours a week, unless you have a specific job that requires more hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Adopting some sort of benefits would be a plus.

    I worked at Metro State University of Denver full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    State employment means decent benefits including health insurance and generous leave policies.

    Cons

    Staff and management are not held accountable for their job duties. Staff bullying and generally feeling unsafe in one's job are reported (see two recent campus climate surveys), with upper management making no observable changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have outside agency come in to do climate surveys and to address hostile and toxic workplace issues. Staff should feel comfortable to bring up issues without fear of retaliation or being fired.

    I worked at Metro State University of Denver as an intern for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The work-study position I held was some of the best experience I had while working in college. They require that you are professional but when no tasks remained you were allowed to work on coursework. While working as a work-study the the faculty/staff treated you as an equal.

    Cons

    The budget the department was allotted for both payroll and laboratory upkeep was to low to make the job worth while. The experience was the reason many stay working there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize the costs of your department in a formal budgetary approach and the department will run like well oiled machinery instead of a reactionary problem solving approach.
