Pros

Small class size, student focused, practical education aiming for the job market. Union shop. Some nice people work there. The students can be fun.

Cons

Union shop. Cut throat, backstabbing, it's not what you know or how well you teach, but who likes you or who wants your job.

Advice to Management

Don't believe everything you hear, especially from the old timers who play politics.

    Pros

    Upper management is generally "hands off" but will quickly step in to solve problems before they get out of hand. Very smart leadership.

    Cons

    I've worked at several colleges and universities and cannot think of anything bad to say about MSU, Mankato.

    Advice to Management

    Keep putting students first and the rest will take care of itself.


  2. Secure and slow paced but if you're looking for decent money, look elsewhere.

    Pros

    Rather secure but not as bulletproof as many think.
    Good health and dental coverage.
    If you're willing to stay in the state system for life, you'll get a retirement package.

    Cons

    Drastically lower wages than in the private sector.
    Wage freeze since 2009 is driving away any talented individuals. You're left with people who just want to coast through or are overworked.
    The state keeps cutting money given to these institutions meaning people keep getting laid off.
    Not hiring new employees, just passing the work along to the remaining employees.

    Advice to Management

    Fight for every last dollar from the State and try to compensate your employees better in some way.
