    Pros

    People here are very friendly and helpful.
    The school campus is beautiful and the food options nearby are good.
    Compensation is good if you want to take courses.

    Cons

    Parking can sometimes be an issue, but there are lots for employees and affordable parking spots.

    Advice to Management

    Everything is good. A good balance between work-life, training is available but should be more helpful.

    Pros

    As a student the flexible hours were a plus!!

    Cons

    Lots of egos and daily interaction with passive aggressive people. Yes, people are nice, but it isn't a genuine nice. There's zero empowerment, every little decision has to be sent through the chain of command for approval.

    Pros

    The benefits are not bad; free tuition up to 18 hours and a 2-1 match up to 5% on the 403b

    Cons

    They pay well below market value. Parking is very expensive. Management is largely incompetent and there are far too many layers.

    Advice to Management

    Completely gut your management staff. Many are overpaid and under-worked. Get your limited dollars back to work for you in education and programming instead of wasting it on needless administrators. Completely overall senior leadership; the University is in a state of disaster and they are the ones who got us here. Invest in keeping young educated staff at SLU. Currently all of the good employees leave for Wash U or the tech companies leaving SLU with only the inept employees.

    HR needs to be reworked. They enable to many bad and incompetent managers to keep their jobs and continue to drive good staff away..

    Bring IT into the 21st century. Seriously, the current state of IT infrastructure at SLU is embarrassing.

    Work life balance does not exist at SLU. This is especially troubling considering the low rate of pay, moral issues, and lack of competent management and contributes greatly to the mass exodus of qualified and capable staff.

  8. Completely acceptable.

    Pros

    I was a student research assistant, and it was great that I could earn some money at a job that was so close and that had such flexibility in terms of hours.

    Cons

    There really were no cons...it was only $10/hr., but I did not really expect much more.

    Pros

    Convenient location, good benefits, great experience and the staff are very helpful.

    Cons

    Inner department drama, low salaries and parking is too far depending on what building you are in.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better with staff and other managers and make your staff feel more appreciated.
