    I have been working at Rogers State University part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great reputable university. I earned my associates and bachelors degree at this school. I highly recommend this university to students and potential employees.

    Cons

    Would like to see the university to allow their online adjunct professors to work as a full time employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please consider allowing full time online adjunct professors.

    Under-staffed, under-paid and under-appreciated.

    I have been working at Rogers State University full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are really good. Employer-paid health insurance and low cost vision/dental are offered. The university also offers tuition assistance for up to 7 credit hours in the fall/spring and 3 hours in the summer semester.

    Cons

    Minimal training, minimal pay, no recognition, employees are seen as highly replaceable.
    Some departments on campus are really good and some are really bad. The pay for all departments is really bad unless you are in an executive position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider employee morale in all decisions. It would be more beneficial and cost saving to retain good employees rather than have to hire and train new employees often.

    Benefits & time off, maybe retirement package

    Good old boys club. Advancement great if in with right people. President definitely a politician. Says what he thinks you want to hear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect staff more. Look and see who is really the loyal employees!

    This is a challenging but fun and friendly place to work, and rarely stressful.

    Current Employee - Computer Support Technician in Claremore, OK

    I have been working at Rogers State University

    Pros

    My job is a very social one. As a support technician, it is my job to fix problems or otherwise compensate for the needs of computers of staff, faculty, and student computer labs. I get plenty of exercise because I walk from my office to wherever the problem or issue exists. Most of the customers (the term customer is used to describe any employee, be it staff or faculty, and also students in some cases. They are not paying customers.) are very friendly and after working here for so long, I have gotten to know almost all of them to some degree.

    Not only is the social aspect great, but I learn a lot outside of my own career field. For example, I may go work on a biology professor's computer system to install some new software that was requested. In doing so, I may not know anything about it at first, but the professor most likely knows a lot about the software (or else it would not have been requested and purchased), and can give me a good explanation of what it does. I may then leave his or her office with some new knowledge of biology.

    One of the best beneifits to working here are the days off. In addition to the vacation/sick hours, I am off any day that the school is closed for business (very few exceptions to this). For example, the school is closed for spring break (although in some cases there is a CHANCE that it would have to be open, it hasn't happened in the four years I've worked here), so I am also off work for spring break.

    Cons

    The university is still small and growing, so the budget isn't as large as many other companies or even state institutions may have. Therefore, we don't always have the absolute most up-to-date equipment to use, and have to be a little more frugal with our resources (some companies may release a computer system from their inventory the day it goes out of warranty; however, we tend to make a computer last as long as we can, provided that it still meets the needs of the user and our own requirements, even if it is not as fast as a brand new one).

    The pay isn't extremely high, although it is not too bad, especially considering all the off-hours included (sick, vacation, personal, and breaks).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To senior management of my department, I would suggest to listen to and better consider ideas of the people lower on the totem-pole, and make stronger arguments to the university administration to increase our departments available spendings.
