    Pros

    WSU's Banacos Center treats me well. They are very prompt with getting back to me for answers. My supervisors care about my progress and my hours are very flexible.

    Cons

    There really aren't any cons, in my opinion, for the job title I have!

    Pros

    Salaries are better than some comparable colleges

    Cons

    Very poorly run institution, disorganized, not well managed. The benefits are OK, though getting cut each year. Raises not good. I would not recommend.


  6. Great community that encourages learning and growth opportunity.

    Pros

    A great place to work with a strong community, excellent benefits, good salary. Many employees have been here for a long time. More opportunity than many places.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy, unfair methods of promotion, no reward for good work, only longevity. Can be hard to move up and around - can get pigeonholed. Occasional red tape.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency, reward good work, keep employee motivation up.
