I have been working at Metropolitan State College of Denver full-time (More than 10 years)
The office I worked in was professional and had minimal politics. Work life balance was equal. Had some overtime but comp time was available. it was great working with students and the faculty.
There was a certain amount of politics at the College in general. The pay was a bit lower than I would have hoped and upward movement was available but you had to wait a bit longer.
Advice to Management
Given the budgets are large, work with employees to move up in their careers.
I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Metropolitan State College of Denver (Denver, CO) in May 2013.
I applied online on Jan 23 2013. I received a call middle of March to request a phone interview which I had on March 28. I have extensive experience in Study abroad so the questions where pretty standard for the interview. There were 5 people on the line so it was confusing at times to keep track of who was who and what they asked. Then I received an email on April 18 for an on campus interview for May 10. Which I accepted. They paid for everything. Very nice campus and seems like a nice place to live and work. I met with the staff again and it was nice to put faces to the names. There is a lot of potential in the position to make it great. Would love to get the position.
