    Pros

    Hours can be flexible during fall and spring semesters, pay is consistent regardless of student traffic, and other work can be done during work hours if you aren't currently giving tutorial services.

    Cons

    Upper management is lacking in proper communication skills and operations, experience working there has been stressful and almost unfulfilling due to poor management operations. There is no introductory training or seminars, everything is figured out on your own. Management does not take responsibility for they're own discrepancies, and use disparaging tactics to avoid employee concerns.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in new management.

    Pros

    It was employee at will and I left the moment I got a chance. Not a bad work schedule but it can be rather stressful because of the people who have been employed with the institution for years and refuse to change their ways

    Cons

    Too many to list:
    - Incompetence anywhere you look
    - People who weren't even registered for class waiting for financial aid refund checks

    Advice to Management

    Need new leadership and root out all the bad apples. Don't downplay the success of those who are actually trying to create a better name for Texas Southern University
