Pros

It's a job. That's all.

Cons

Disconnected, dishonest management. Too big to be aware of employee needs/concerns. Takes advantage of contract employees (no overtime paid for 17hr days, 70-80hr weeks). Laid off twice (large groups of people, not just one) in 4 years...once via conference call!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start treating your contract employees like people. Provide worthwhile benefits. Quit lining your pockets with contract $$ and share some of it with the people earning it for you. Compensate your contractors fairly for the work they do.

    Pros

    The salary is fair relative to the cost of living in the area. Some of the work I have done has been reasonably interesting. The benefits are pretty good. Overtime is rarely expected but sometimes available if desired.

    Cons

    Salary compression is a problem. Promotions can take a while depending on the department. Most of the work areas are dreary and depressing. No part of the outdoor areas on campus are picturesque. Most of the work available requires spending all day in a dreary, windowless environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix up the facilities and make the campus more beautiful.
