Pros

Faculty at NAU will go out of their way to help others and are among the devoted to teaching undergraduates. The students are bright and a blast to teach and very down-to-earth.

Cons

Salaries are significantly lower than other institutions, and the University is cutting back on tenure-track positions due to budgetary reasons.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The leadership needs to maintain a high level of teaching quality even in these tough budgetary times.

    Pros

    Individual college departments treat employees very well and are always there to help there employees.

    Cons

    My personal feeling is NAU as a whole has begun to loose their obligation to its' students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managment within lower levels of the university works well; however, managment between upper levels of managment and the university as a whole will greatly increase the overall quality for students and employees.

    Pros

    Flagstaff is beautiful, and it is wonderful tob live at 7,000 feet elevation. The campus is beautiful, but small and surrounded by two different cemetaries.

    Cons

    Northern Arizona University is one of only three big employers in the small town of approximately 50,000 to 60,000 people (counting students). It is a Small Town, and after a year you have done everything and met everyone. Management hires for only one year at a time. So if they don't like you, and you don't put in 60 hours a week but get paid for 40 hours a week, they will not rehire you each year. It is hard to purchase a house with this job instability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the one year employment contracts. They are oppresive. Treat your employees with more respect and appreciation. Allow work hour flexibilty
