    I have been working at Wayne State as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexibility in the work day environment. Good entry level job to gain experience in a non profit environment. Academic environment is stimulating. There is a wonderful cultural mix of students and employees from all over the world to interact with.

    Cons

    A few long term union employees with bad attitudes can make work processes difficult. Poor, offensive, and insulting , behavior is ignored by management. Unnecessary limits and controls implemented by some colleges delay work processes, and create an environment of distrust.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR needs to seriously evaluate the work environment including decision makers.
