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 Management

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 Management

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

    Pros

    I was able to make my own schedule, there was a coffee shop in my building, and my co-workers were friendly.

    Cons

    They had unrealistic expectations of how much time a person is capable of working and there was a general lack of funding to maintain equipment.

    Advice to Management

    They need to invest the time and money in good products/ construction up front and avoid all the maintenance issues that disrupt work.
