    I worked at Western Connecticut State University part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The flexibility provided and high level of standard, made this a great place to work. Professional staff made this a job I enjoyed coming to each day.

    Cons

    More staff would have proven beneficial to the company's clientele. I would have liked to have seen a more positive influence from those who held positions at the head of school.

    Advice to Management

    Office staff was polite, professional and easy to work with. I really enjoyed the flexibility to move within the company. Also, the location was good. Being close to New York City was an added benefit.

    I worked at Western Connecticut State University full-time (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 Management

    The emphasis on hiring and strengthening teaching faculty is warranted, but the administrative faculty needs some help, too.
