    I have been working at Arkansas State University (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Many opportunities, Great student, polite and hard working

    Cons

    Organization difficulties. Requests are not answered in an appropriate length; and yet when faculty are asked to do a task it is past due by the time you hear about it.

    Advice to Management

    Be clearer in providing sources for information for new employees

    Reward great work accordingly. Raises need to keep in time with the community in which the job is located. You lose valuable employees due to basement bottom salaries.

    Pros

    Atmosphere is relaxed
    Faculty and staff are supportive and willing to help
    The classes are usually high quality and there are plenty of opportunities to gain additional research experience

    Cons

    Many of the departments are unorganized
    There's usually trouble with getting grad students on the payroll, even if they've been at the University for a while
    Some of the course requirements feel asinine, and it feels like I'm not learning anything from some classes but am just checking a box off the list

    Advice to Management

    Streamline and organize the managerial departments (e.g., Treasurer's Office, Administration)
    Re-evaluate the necessity of some of the courses required for MS and PhD students

    Pros

    Small peaceful town with big opportunities. Engineering, environmental sciences, business, agriculture, and other programs at A-State have accelerated and there are plenty of opportunities to start your own research. The work and life balance is great, benefits are good including affordable health insurance, vision and dental.

    Cons

    The technical support department is not good as it should be considering the size of the school. It takes a while to get things done. Not everybody works at the same pace as you do.

    Advice to Management

    We need more GA's, TA's to offset some of the load on the faculty. We need people who can help us in the labs, installation of the software/hardware, etc.
