    Pros

    If you're a Morehead alum or townie, I'm sure you'll fit in fine. If not, you're going to have problems.

    Cons

    I was doing well until my boss, and on up the chain of command, realized I didn't want to move here. From then on thry were on a mission to get rid of me. I didn't want to live in Morehead because there's basically nothing there and the cell service is bad and there are only 3 radio stations.

    Advice to Management

    Just because a person wold rather commute, doesn't mean they're not committed to their job.


  3. Not a bad place to work.

    Pros

    Some of the students are eager to learn. Helping to develop their intellects, and helping them to achieve their dreams, is the real benefit of teaching in such a socio-economically distressed area of the country.

    Cons

    The administration at MSU does not value education. We are constantly cutting programs and faculty while "investing" in athletics and unnecessary infrastructure. According to a recent report, the proportion of the budget spent on instruction has declined by 23% over the last ten years. Administrator salaries, meanwhile, are skyrocketing. Faculty salaries remain in the lowest decile of Masters-granting institutions, which is the reason most of the profs have left or are trying to leave. The present administration has created a toxic, anti-teaching environment. Professors are terrified of speaking out as a result of frequent and open threats to those who oppose the administration's initiatives.

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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

    Working in the payroll department was amazing. The staff are friendly and it's almost like you're apart of a close knit family. They're we're super helpful to me, and I learned many valuable skills when working with them.

    Cons

    The pay could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing.
