Pros

It is a beautiful campus and the people, for the most part, are good people. The campus has a lot of potential.

Cons

The potential for growth is great but the commitment is not there. There are obstacles to becoming the best and apathy in the administration is overwhelming the university. They talk of being great but are not committed to being the best.

Advice to Management

My experience is in athletics. SVSU speaks of being better than Grand Valley but SVSU doesn't even come close to being like Grand Valley. The lack of support in leadership positions is overwhelming. The lack of support financially is also overwhelming. Instead of fighting to beat opponents the fight is with budgeting, salaries, materials, administration and more.

    Pros

    Good people, good benefits, working in a setting of higher education

    Cons

    no support from upper administration, poor communication, very lean finically for budgets and support staff

    Advice to Management

    This could be an amazing place to work if upper administration would just add some support staff and stop burning out its employees. They tell you exactly what you want to hear, but the speed at which action is taken, is about as slow as molasses.


  2. Great place to be a student worker
