    I worked at Middle Tennessee State University as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good resources and faculty, helpful staff if somewhat uninterested, generally flexible with work schedule. Overall a good work experience for the resume.

    Cons

    The faculty can be somewhat mistrusting of student workers, unavailable for discussion of departmental policies or subjects above and beyond their normal duties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open with workers about resources available to them and encourage participation beyond the minimum requirements.

    I worked at Middle Tennessee State University as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    MTSU is a great place to work in terms of administrative and academic resources available. The faculty are more than willing to help a fellow colleague out.

    Cons

    As a faculty member, you see the effort put forth by certain faculty that conveys an indifference to the position, i.e. teachers that don't care about teaching.

    Pros

    Amazing students and brilliant dedicated faculty members

    Cons

    The administration is unorganized and makes the lives of students more stressful. Too many stupid forms/emails to deal with just to get anything done. The IT department is a mess and makes the use of essential software difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on making the students lives better and everything else will fall into place. Get organized and remember what your priorities are as a learning institution.
