    "State position while having great benefits, entity is shifting to more of a corporate environment"

    Pros

    Benefits, people, self motivating, free education while being employed, great campus activities and amazing to see students succeed. Campus is a beautiful place!

    Cons

    No raises or benefits based on performance, no flexibility whatsoever and what used to be work life balance (that is now limited). Even in specific departments there is no fairness of work distribution

    Advice to Management

    Need to add flexibility to work environment and assess fairness across campus

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Bridgewater State University full-time

    Pros

    Easy money for easy and boring work

    Cons

    If you're being supported by your parents then getting a student job here is great, if you're not then look elsewhere. I have had several on campus jobs that have led me to believe that I would continue working over the summer. Both times I was told last minute that I wouldn't be working, with only 1 or 2 weeks left until summer. This certainly isn't enough time to find a job outside of BSU.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication with your employees, don't just drop off the face of the earth actually stay in contact with them about their positions. DRUG TESTING needs to become mandatory for all student positions on campus. You shouldn't have student leaders that take drugs like acid and cocaine.

    Former Employee - Adjunct Professor

    I worked at Bridgewater State University part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great campus, students for the most part motivated, programming can be open to positive change; MOST FT staff and faculty are supportive of PT lecturers/adjunct professors

    Cons

    Difficult to stay in touch with FT professors, Dept Chairs, attend meetings during the daytime (as have to hold another PT job); some FT teaching and admin personnel biased in their approach to adjunct faculty

    Advice to Management

    Please provide avenues for PT lecturers/adjunct faculty to be fully embraced and treated equally; even the grading and upholding of classroom "rules" more difficult for adjunct, who often need to defend a grade given to a student
