Working here was not what I thought it would be!!!

Director of IT (Former Employee)
Cullowhee, NC

I worked at Western Carolina University full-time for more than a year

ProsIf you like to work out in the country, than this is a good place too do that. You can experience all 4 of the seasons and beautiful mountain views.

ConsWorking at a University I would have thought that the focus would have been towards he student and do what you could to aid them with gaining the best education they could. Shockingly I was wrong in what I had learned while working here. Most of the money is spent to better department heads, to better them self and not the students. I had student computer labs with computers that better then 8 years old. When asked for money to take care of this and to better the education of the students, I was told that there weren't any funds to take care of this.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a better look at how you can take care of the education needs of the students, rather then the needs of the professors and the staff.

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