    I have been working at The Ohio State University full-time (More than 10 years)


    Many opportunities for education and professional development.
    Course work both related to the job as well as outside of job duties is funded.
    Ohio State offers services for students,faculty, and staff for career development and exploration
    The medical plan offered through Ohio State is one of the best in the country.


    Salaries across the university need to be more equitable. Salaries for staff as well as faculty tend to vary with each department. While this tends to be the case in other universities as well, it needs to be considered for Ohio State Staff as well.

    Advice to Management

    The management in my particular department is stellar. There is a continual striving to work together to keep the quality of work high and student focused, as well as giving the staff satisfaction in performing their responsibilities.
