    it is one of the best places to work ,stress free and a good place except for the weather

    Research Assistant (Current Employee) Fargo, ND

    Prosstress free,flexible. People care for each other and value your success, the area is growing and the university is a core part of that.

    ConsVery cold in winter, which lasts almost half the year, flooding in spring, entertainment can be less than exciting at times

    Advice to Senior ManagementWould be great to defuse the politics surrounding scandals, there are a lot of great workers and these types of issues are very distracting

    Worked in Information Technology Services as a Student Employee while I went to school full-time.

    Communications and Web Specialist (Former Employee) Fargo, ND

    ProsGood experience, laid back environment, friendly co-workers. The pace of workflow was easy to maintain and every so often, a challenging project would come up that would be rewarding to accomplish.

    ConsSometimes mundane tasks and the pay could have been a little better. Not much cross-training among different parts of the department.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOverall the experience was great, just wish it paid a little better.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Much better opportunities available for men than women

    Assistant Professor (Current Employee) Fargo, ND

    Prosopportunity to continue your own education with 1 course/ semester if you wish to do so. A lot of nice people work there.

    ConsSexist. Rules/ policies are randomly followed or enforced by administration. Splendid opportunities will be presented to male employees while female employees will be asked to teach less desirable courses and take on extra classes. I watched a male colleague get paid to vacation in Europe with his family (when he was supposed to do a particular job) and when the work he was paid to do was not done, administration demanded that the female faculty work overtime and for no additional pay to do the job that the male colleague had been paid to do. And then they gave the male colleague Paid Leave after his paid family vacation/ work abdication. True Story.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed clear, unambiguous policies that are followed in the same way for everyone.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
