Current Employee - Office Manager - Support Staff in Detroit, MI

Pros

Dealing with interesting subject materials. Working with MSUE Educators.

Cons

Promotions, training, compensations, rewards are directed to MSU staff and not to support staff. Support staff undervalued by main office.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management should remember that support staff are the public face of Extension offices. University resources are only valuable if they are accesible to the public.
