    I have been working at Arizona State University part-time

    Pros

    Many opportunities for interdisciplinary work

    Cons

    As a graduate student worker, the line between "student" and "employee" is blurry, resulting in confusion about who to turn to regarding employment issues (HR? your department? both?)

    I have been working at Arizona State University part-time

    Pros

    The position allows you to work at your own pace and work around your schedule.

    Cons

    A lot of responsibility is handed to the grader with minimal direction often times so you have to have good judgement.

    Advice to Management

    Provide training to new employees and examples of graded work.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Arizona State University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    health benefits are great, forced retirement is great when you retire if its still there

    Cons

    This isn't like working in Education. Schools are run like businesses, bad bosses, even those that are known as really bad, continue to have jobs.

    Advice to Management

    do what you said, and fire people who have no business working there. When many, many people complain, its not a personality conflict, its a problem.
