    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Oakland University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Metro area presents opportunities, growing school, not-too-demanding-students, decent travel funding, some research opportunities available

    Cons

    Political culture, senior admin/faculty not open to change/ways of doing things. While a small daily irritation, the lack of parking for faculty/staff is indicative of lack of respect for employees/faculty. More networking-social events would be beneficial for newer employees. The academic weaknesses in the student body make instruction challenging at times. A greater recruitment effort for other parts of the state/country might help, as would increased residential opportunities both directly on campus and in the surrounding area.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Able to learn from professors and work with them to make sure I know what is important in a job and what is not

    Cons

    I do not like the pay scale very much but being a student still and learning the skills needed when I graduate, the learning far outweighs the pay

    Advice to Management

    I would like the management to be able to come around more often and see that we are doing what they are expecting of us and in a satisfactory matter.
