    Pros

    The benefit package is outstanding. Management can be flexible on individual circumstances.

    Cons

    It is difficult to be trained for a specific position because there is such a variety of tasks required in each position.

    Advice to Management

    The rate of pay for many positions is overstated and is understated for others.

    Pros

    The best things about working at Marshall are that my peers re nice and supportive and it's a very positive atmosphere.

    Cons

    As adjunct faculty, it's hard to know the pros and cons well because you are distinctly not part of the team.

    Pros

    Working for the university will give you previous experience in your field, as well as a source of recommendations for future work.

    Cons

    The hours were limited, so you couldn't treat it like a full time job even if you wanted to do that.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring students! It's great for them and for you.

    I have been working at Marshall University

    Pros

    The hours are leniant and it takes care of a good chunk of tuition as well as pays a good bit. It is worth it especially in the summer. I have enjoyed it.

    Cons

    They do not cover all of your tuitition except for in the summer. Sometimes if you are busy it is hard to balance school and work depending on your courseload.

    Pros

    Great university and great towns both Huntington and Charleston. I really enjoyed the people I worked with and the school is great.

    Cons

    Awful management at first(was fired) and the new leadership was great. Pay was pretty bad and the time off was okay.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay


  10. Jobs are dependent on a shrinking pool of grant money.

    Pros

    Most employees have a flexible work schedule. It is not very stressful and you get pretty decent state benefits. Quality of leadership is very dependent in which department you work.

    Cons

    There is very little opportunity for raises and innovation is not encouraged. Any advances are given to "yes" men and women. Constructive criticism is frowned upon.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open minded to listening to suggestions from the employees that actual do the job.

    Pros

    Flexible hours and relaxed environment

    Cons

    Pay was a little low and it took almost 6 weeks for the bursar to process our first pay roll. Otherwise, the checks came on time and were really consistent.

    Advice to Management

    Invest a little more in the environment for your workers so that you get interest from the employees you REALLY want to work for you and represent the university.
