    My experience at Fisk University was exciting I learned alot with working with customers.

    Assistant Administrator (Current Employee)
    Nashville, TN

    ProsIts great networking, you will have a variety of experience in different things. you will be busy at times but the work in the end will become very beneficial to you when you go out to the real work force.

    ConsIt can be very challenging but you learn from your mistakes an make them useful for the next task that you will have. You will have to learn how to balance your work life and personal life , working here will teach you a lot of time management and how to prioritize different things.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIts very important to pay attention to your work, while working make sure you handle business very professional at all time because you may never know who you may come in contact with.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Prosworkers are friendly for the most part.
    management appreciates hard work
    willing to grant you time off for valid reasons

    Consthe salary is not so competitive
    an extra amount of self motivation needed to function effectively
    very few bonuses offered on the job

    Student Researcher (Current Employee)
    Nashville, TN

    ProsIt is a close knit community. Everyone knows each other and you feel like a family. Advisors/managers take the time to train you well and recognize you for good performance.

    ConsVery small campus. Not many activities on a regular basis. A lot of the buildings need to be rennovated and more recruitment needs to take place.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more active at rejuvinating this university. It has a great legacy to live up to and doesn't seem to be meeting standards of the past.

    Good place to work bad communication

    Office Assistant (Current Employee)
    Nashville, TN

    Prosone of the best reasons to work at Fisk are the benefits. you get plenty of days off paid vacation. they people are fun to work with and the students are not that bad. they offer tuition remission if you are looking to go back to school or have children that goes to the school.

    Consno one communicates with each other, and they can fire you when ever they want with out any explanation. they want too much for little money and expect you to know how to do other jobs. when you want a vacation you can not get it until your boss takes a vacation. work long hours and get no vacation. you have to call in sick to get a vacation. the senior leaders do not care what is going on in your life as long as you complete your work. if they do not like you but you do your work well you will get fired.

    Advice to Senior Managementif i had to give advice to senior management i would tell them to leave their personal life at home and do not take out your frustrations on other employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Fisk University Review

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe staff was great. any were down to earth however some could be arrogant and thought of themselves as better than thou. But that was rare. Fairly diverse bunch at the faculty - very nice

    ConsCould not pay their bills. This company is not solvent they need a good CFO that knows what they are doing. You can talk until you blue in the face at meetings and waste a bunch of time at using buzz words that you just off the internet! Bottom line you still dont have any money!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementRestructure several Depts. Be leaner in your spending.And i see this in so many Companies....quit competing against each other unify and help one another to accomplish the companies Goals.

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fisk encourages independent work development skills

    Graduate Student (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat company to work for. Very willing to move you to differant locations if your lifestyle needs to. As well as moving up in the company if you preform well.

    ConsYou will be very challenged with your management skills. You will also work alot of hours. But that is the beast of retail

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy biggest irritation in jobs like these is often managers attempt to make the jobs seem harder then they are. As long as employees are not being rude, disruptive, or inattentive and the store does not look unkept. It is okay to leave them alone

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
