    I have been working at Emporia State University full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    ESU is a small state university with the feel and look of private liberal arts school. Administration is available. Teaching is flexible and academic freedom is protected. Despite funding cuts, they were transparent in the decisions that needed to be made in order to maintain the excellence of the university.

    Cons

    State funding cuts made it difficult for the department to move forward with searches, which made it difficult to grow the programs. Also, the town is quaint, but many choose not to live there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes decisions are made that could use a little more rationale communicated.

    I have been working at Emporia State University part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Position pays for the school and offers a small salary on top. Easy to get into the MBA program and there is an ERP (enterprise resource planning) concentration.

    Cons

    Some teachers are very nit-picky and assign work that isn't all that useful for a professional career. There are lots of foreign exchange students in the MBA program and language barriers cause problems in communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time working with employers to make students more valuable in the job market. Help get students jobs!

    Pros

    ESU is very family and community orientated. If you need assistance across the campus, you will usually find others very willing to provide help.

    Cons

    It is difficult to get hired from outside the university. You have to know someone here to have the opportunity to become employed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The incentive to achieve more and for self improvement is not provided. Financial benefits need to be increased.
