    Former Employee - Help Desk Technician in Southfield, MI

    I worked at Lawrence Technological University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance with flexible scheduling. Fun, easy going environment. Management encourages training. Great benefits. The opportunity to take courses at the university while working full-time is unmatched. Not only that, but the gym on campus is only a short walk away. Everyone is generally up beat and easy going.

    Cons

    Little opportunity for advancement.

    Former Employee - Fabrication Lab Technician Assistant in Southfield, MI
    Former Employee - Fabrication Lab Technician Assistant in Southfield, MI

    I worked at Lawrence Technological University full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Personal growth, training, volunteerism, time off policies, benefits. Working and mentoring students in a lab setting where they can apply what they learn in the books to a real world application is extremely satisfying.

    Cons

    Office culture was different, some people seemed to have favoritism. Pay structure and office politics are cons as well. All in all there were far more pros than cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider paying for the talent you have before it leaves for better salary opportunities.

    Former Employee - Advisor in Southfield, MI

    I worked at Lawrence Technological University

    Pros

    It's a well established university with a good reputation in the region. positive environment with a comfortable atmosphere. students are motivating when they receive help.

    Cons

    At the position that i had as an advisor was targeting the graduate students in their program, therefore the compensation was very minimal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the freshmen student advisers a larger compensation, or maybe instead of compensation reward them with school credit to pay some of the tuition.
