    Student Research Analyst

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI was given the opportunity to take on many responsibilities -- much more than the typical student assistant duties one would normally think of. This position was the launching pad for my professional career. I loved who I worked with and the experience & skills I was able to develop.

    ConsAs a student employee, I was only paid minimum wage despite the quality of my work. Small potatoes in the grand scheme of things.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    I loved my job at the University of Southern Indiana because I liked working with the students and helping them.

    Cashier (Former Employee)
    Evansville, IN

    ProsI learned a lot from working here.
    I loved the diversity of the students.
    I felt satisfied when helping students who needed help.

    ConsAlthough I loved my job, they don't pay too well.
    They don't promote from within too much.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI was always looking for ways to make my job better but it wasn't wanted. You don't care if people do a good job; just as long as people show up for work and not make waves is the most important thing for you.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work

    Administrative Assistant (Former Employee)

    ProsEveryone from all departments are nice, friendly, and helpful. Great network of people to learn from and work with. Everything is explained clearly from the beginning and everyone takes time to answer questions.

    ConsThe pay isn't great but I guess comparable to other jobs in the same line of work. I would have liked to see better starting wages and better rate increases. There really weren't a lot of drawbacks, mainly just the low pay. It's also a lengthy hiring process; from the time I applied until I was hired, it was probably close to 2 months.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    My experience working for the University of Southern Indiana was enjoyable and fulfilling.

    Resident Assistant (Current Employee)
    Evansville, IN

    ProsOne of the best reasons to work at the University of Southern Indiana is the opportunity to work with a diverse staff as well as getting to network with many people.

    ConsOne of the downsides to working at the University of Southern Indiana is the inconsistency when it comes to how different housing staffs operate.

    Benefits are great

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Evansville, IN

    ProsExcellent retirement benefits, employee fee waiver for undergraduate and graduate level courses, dependent fee waiver (75%), childcare, fitness center..

    ConsPay increases are based on amount the state appropriates. This stinks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to balance those who are overworked and those who are underworked. Find ways to balance this.

    It was a great job, but it didn't pay the best.

    Resident Director (Former Employee)

    ProsIt is close to town, a great area to live at and the campus is definitely growing. Most of the professors are dedicated to their work and enjoy challenges. This can be seen by the enthusiasm of the students.

    ConsNeed better pay and more staff connections.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGood.

    I'm very happy here

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFamily friendly, kind coworkers, opportunities for creativity and innovation

    ConsFar from family (for me), perhaps not as much funding available as at private institutions

    What a Joke

    Cashier (Former Employee)
    Evansville, IN

    ProsGood hours and it's nice to have a winter break.

    ConsThe less work you do at this company, the more promotions you get

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't promote people who don't work! Promote and reward hard-workers!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    ConsSalaries are well below comparable median salaries.
