    Pros

    Best reason to work for the CSU system is for the benefits. Yet, those are rapidly changing. The campus environment is beautiful.

    Cons

    Pay is non-competitive and often downright dismal. There are very few pay increases. Even when you develop a solid argument for a pay increase, it's shot down due to budget. Collective bargaining agreement job classifications stranglehold those employees trying to get ahead, but can't.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to increase salaries by more than 1.34% every 4 or 5 years. Manage the individual departments like a manager and not like a person afraid to take action for fear of what the Union might do.


  2. Loads of Work...Hectic Schedule

    Advice to Management

    Hire more students and reduce the load on students. What is the use of classes in the evening if students are not allowed to do internships?
