Not paid enough for all the grief you're given

Project Specialist (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsSomewhat altruistic, if you actually get to help students through their college career.

ConsCulture of many departments is: Faculty are gods, staff are scum. Faculty gets all the pay raises, staff have gone 9 years without a raise - until this year when they got 2%. If they were lucky. Faculty treats staff like slaves.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
