    Pros

    Meaningful work -- opportunity to help students across the system/state. Office facilities are premium. Tremendous flexibility with tele-work and work schedule. Amazing health insurance.

    Cons

    Sexism is alive and well. Management is not transparent. Environment is highly political -- to some extent this is simply the fiscal reality, but it's difficult.

  3. Teaching assistants here are treated very well.

    Pros

    As a graduate teaching assistant, I share a large office with one other person, and teach one 4 credit hour class. Very little in the way of responsibilities for a free education.

    Cons

    Stipend is not enough to live off of.

    Pros

    It is a great learning environment for students and the staff are very particular about the well-being and success of their students.

    Cons

    It's difficult to get an on campus job due to the competitiveness amongst students. Also, not all jobs are available for international students.

    Pros

    MSU worked with my schedule to find a time that was convenient for me to teach.
    The students were good to work with and the web interface for assessing and tracking the student's progress made grading easy.

    Cons

    Sometimes relying on technology causes hangups but nothing out of the ordinary.
    Working with students exposes you to all kinds of personalities most are great but there are always challenges in this industry.

  8. Excellent on-boarding experience.

    Pros

    Many professional growth opportunities, diverse student and professional workforce, intellectual challenge. Facilities, work space, Human Relations personnel, training & development facilities, were all modern and well designed.

    Cons

    Large university system bureaucracy can delay evaluation and implementation of new ideas or processes. Sales and marketing support were limited by budget and lack of experienced mentors/supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more high level personal development opportunities.

    Pros

    Great learning environment for students with a faculty and staff who have a sincere commitment to students' academic growth. We have a very helpful staff to work with and we can come together to accomplish a common goal.

    Cons

    Promotion within the university is difficult, usually hire from outside of the university. Politics play a role and there is so much red tape to get through.

  10. The best.
