    Pros

    Dr. Rogers largely lets you work independently, but will always answer a text you send to him, builds plants identification skills, GIS skills, learn different techniques

    Cons

    HR can sometimes be slow in responding to paperwork, being so independent can seem daunting at first


  3. A growing institution with some great programs, not too big not too small.

    Pros

    You can make a difference at an institution this size. It is transformative for many students.

    Cons

    There are negatives at any place. The vast majority of the employees are friendly, dedicated bunch with a few odd ducks.

    Pros

    Great insurance benefits. Great pension as well as additional retirement options.

    Cons

    Low pay and little opportunity for advancement. Lack of support from upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to do a better job when it comes to promoting from within, addressing issues, and supporting their staff. Human resources is a joke and probably the worst that I've seen at any place of employment. There is also a complete lack of confidentiality.

    Pros

    Wonderful supervisor! It's a pretty easy job with minimal pay but it's a great resume builder. Boss is very patient and flexible with our school schedule.

    Cons

    The pay sucks but it is too be expected because the job consists of sitting around with little to do.
