I worked at Western Connecticut State University full-time for more than 5 years
Pros – Higher ed is a great industry. A campus setting teeming with faculty and students is a rewarding place to work. State benefits (health, etc.) are really good.
Cons – WCSU underpays its staff as compared to other Connecticut public higher colleges and universities. Administrative faculty are in a union which flattens pay increases despite performance.
Leadership tends to be weak.
Advice to Senior Management – The emphasis on hiring and strengthening teaching faculty is warranted, but the administrative faculty needs some help, too.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
