    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

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

    Pros

    Everyone 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.

    Cons

    The 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I 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.

    Pros

    One 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.

    Cons

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to balance those who are overworked and those who are underworked. Find ways to balance this.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't promote people who don't work! Promote and reward hard-workers!
