I have been working at San Jose State

Pros

Flexible Schedule, Open-minded friendly coworkers, Happy people, Low stress environment

Cons

No advancement, no challenges, no responsibility growth and corresponding career and compensation growth

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take risks, innovate, ask more of employees, consolidate employees, increase wages, thin the remaining, increase wages, thin the remaining, end up giving pay of two previous to one remaining, thereby doubling existing income of all, -replace those not contributing/bad influence.

    I have been working at San Jose State

    Pros

    Very supportive of advancing education and professional development, a lot of opportunities to try out different roles in the university, a refreshing change after working in the corporate world for 15 years.

    Cons

    Low pay, stifling bureaucracy, plenty of academic politics, major funding issues, some faculty were demanding and very difficult to support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to keep San Jose State a university instead of molding it into a corporation. Education should not be so rationalized. Focus should be on learning, not the bottom line. This should be the mission of all the CSUs, not just SJSU
