    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at CSU Sacramento full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Working with the students was a plus and the benefits were good. Those are the only pros for an otherwise terrible experience.

    Cons

    Administration and horribly bad management and HR. Unsafe working conditions, university has been sued by employees and lost. Pay is below market and raises are difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Be better managers and leads. Just because a chair has a PHD doesn’t mean they should be able to manage employees. Soft skills count too! First place I worked where employees committed suicide due to bad management.

    I have been working at CSU Sacramento part-time

    Pros

    I held a couple of student work positions through CSUS and I can say that they are great for acquiring initial work experience. The departments I worked for (and work for currently) are straightforward as to their expectations of you on the job and there are usually other great perks to working at the university you attend!

    Cons

    The pay can vary greatly, especially for student employees. The hours can vary vastly as well, but this is usually a benefit for students because of the need for study time. Depending on the department you work for within CSUS, your level of responsibility and workload can also vary from minimal to overwhelming at times as I've noticed with co-workers who were graduate students.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in communication with employees, especially new or student employees.
