    I have been working at Morehead State University as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Management was great. Benefits are good. Very flexible schedule with great coworkers and supervisors. There is some good talent for a non-research oriented university. The department chair is great and really excelled at finding funding for projects. There are some great research projects that seem to be progressing quickly.

    Cons

    The pay could be better. Career guidance could be improved in the department. I did not enjoy the town of Morehead, Ky. There isn't a whole lot to do here.

    Pros

    Time off, ability to attend school while you work there,benifits,coworkers are great

    Cons

    Seems administration is only concerend with self benefit, thay make make 90k+,while employees struggle to make ends meet. The president of msu I the second highest paid in the state. This place needs some serious changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the compensation scale and really bring your employees to market rates. Have a fair hiring process hire people that have the qualifications for the job and not friends of the hiring committee.

    I have been working at Morehead State University as an intern (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible schedule, excellent coworkers and supervisors, some very talented and knowledgeable people. Got to work very closely with instructors and learn from both instructors and supervisors and see the inner workings of academia. Plenty opportunity to do homework during downtime.

    Cons

    Very little future guidance. This is not a position to help you get a future potion in the organization. Being a university, most admin jobs people are very overqualified for their position in terms of education: ie secretaries with MBAs, etc. Very hard to get in and move up. Low pay all around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you have good employees, try to groom them to work for you in the future. It seems some of the better people leave as the organization brings in people from elsewhere with similar experience/education. Assess your employees and retain those that are assets.

    I worked at Morehead State University part-time

    Pros

    The areas surrounding Morehead are beautiful.

    Cons

    Leadership is terrible, people are competing to see who can do less, nepotism gets unqualified people into jobs they can't handle, administration makes promises they don't keep.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider being more honest, and don't just worry about your own salary.

    Pros

    Everyone is helpful. Benefits are relatively good. There is also a good open door policy. My supervisors make themselves approachable and at least seem open to new ideas. Get job for entry level position.

    Cons

    The pay is not very good which is the top complaint around campus. Also, not a lot of professional development opportunities available in our department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise everyone's pay... But seriously, keep doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    The coworkers are tremendous to be around, down to earth and very helpful.

    Cons

    Compensation is very poor overall, work very hard for very little pay. Although this is understandable for a small university with one of the smallest operating budgets in the U.S.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase salaries for the ones who deserve it or they will find another business to work for

    The work was easy, and I was able to work quite a few hours, so in the end it was definitely worth working there.

    Former Employee - Tutor in Morehead, KY

    I worked at Morehead State University part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I made my own hours, usually got to work on my homework at work, there wasn't much that challenged me, and it paid well enough that I didn't have to work another job as well.

    Cons

    It paid minimum wage, whereas some of my friends made quite a bit more doing the same amount of work, I occasionally had run ins with superiors, and it had nothing to do with my major or what I wanted to do after college.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Up the pay a bit, so that you don't have to hire anyone that applies, since a lot of the new tutors have no idea what they're doing.
