    I have been working at Arizona State University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Projects are awesome, they feel like real world implementations and there is a satisfaction about completing them.

    Cons

    It is a crowded campus with some of the classes having a strength of over 150. Really hard to get the classes that are in demand even if you are 0.1 seconds late after the course registration opens (Computer Science)

    Advice to Management

    Decrease the size of classes, increase the number of faculty, decrease the duties of teaching assistants and try develop decent sports teams.

    The Engineering school is pretty good. Lots of opportunities for part-time work. If you can get a programming job or assistantship, the pay is quite decent.

    The area around the campus isn't very safe at night. Lots of burglaries, drunk people, homelessness.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good atmosphere, very innovative

    Cons

    Moving within university can be tough and you need to be really patient for promotions. Pay is not that great because benefits are really good. Every department operates differently, so the same job really is not the same across the company.

    I have been working at Arizona State University full-time

    Pros

    The school offers very good benefits to full time employees, and the camaraderie between instructors creates a sense of support.

    Cons

    The size of the school makes it more difficult than it needs to be to get easy changes or answers. Teaching load is very heavy.

    I worked at Arizona State University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is very nice and supportive. All the staff are very passionate about education and helping move the institution forward. ASU is always moving and doing new things in higher ed.

    Cons

    Low pay, some staff positions pay as little as $40K but require a masters degree. You definitely need a graduate degree to advance.

    Advice to Management

    I wished there were more opportunities for staff. There's so much talent as ASU, but most of the focus is on professors. Focus on your non-teaching staff too. They are the ones that help keep everything running to support the professors in their research and teaching.
