    What does our job really mean..

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Winston-Salem State University

    Pros

    Love for the students & community. As a former student, I loved to talk with the current students & share my experiences at the university & advise them of their needs & goals. The community also provide good support to the university.

    Cons

    Lack of teamwork, communication & job benefits . After experiencing both sides as a student & staff member..I see that people dont really understand that their main goal is to support the students.. Some departments are not organized which hurts other departments within the university. Also there is no room for advancement & the healthcare benefits are not being met.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Socialize & communicate more with the students & monitor the organization of each department. Without the students there wouldn't be a university.

    I have been working at Winston-Salem State University full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The students are the heart of the institution, the comraderie between colleagues who have the same interests in the students is awesome.

    Cons

    There are personal agendas all over the campus, many people are only concerned about status or a maintaining job, the morale is low, and bullying occurs. This was not the case about 3-4 years ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the students are not top priority to you, then your talents would be better suited in a corporate setting.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    There is a real sense of community when you work at WSSU. Everyone really tries to work together.

    Cons

    Some people can take their power and run with it. You will get work request and orders from people that don't need to be giving them.
