    Pros

    Fun place, Great Campus. Good focus and all around pleasant atmosphere to make it a good place to work. Benefits great too.

    Stodgy big institutional. Not the most vibrant place in terms of professional growth, but that is offset by security so it ends up being a tradeoff.

    Pros

    I'm proud that I've studied at CSU. I'm learning not only my field but also other field that may be related in my field.

    The employee's at CSU business office is too late for any kind of request.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Standard work hours that don't sprawl into 50+ hour work weeks, no need to be exemplary at role you're tasked with.

    Cons

    Decisions are politically and personality minded more often than based on most effective course of action, as well as very tenacious defense of fiefdom control, so you must be adept at avoiding stepping on people's toes as opposed to being adept at contributing solid, progressive work

    Advice to Management

    Much of the problems are inherent to the system, however actively engaging problems and loosening control of minor details in order to better accomplish major goals would help create a more positive work environment
