    Pros

    Professors supervise and teach you skills useful outside the classroom. The professors have great time flexibility, and are there for the research and the students.

    Cons

    Didn't work along side the professor, but thats understandable.

    Pros

    Flexible with school schedule, care about professional development, great work environment, very relaxed vibe

    Cons

    There was occasionally drama, as is the case with most college kids, but as long as you weren't in it, it was actually a little fun to watch.

    I worked at CSU Stanislaus (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked in the athletic department while I was attending school. Really enjoyed working with the athletic department on gamedays. Great job to have and I gained alot of great experience that I carried over after graduating.

    Cons

    I can not say a bad thing about working in the athletic department

    I worked at CSU Stanislaus full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome place to work and great place for growth. Higher education is a great investment for both our nation and local economy!

    Cons

    Unfortunately it does take more time once you apply and receive a response from the Human Resources department. However, if you are consistent, it will pay off!

    I have been working at CSU Stanislaus full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and decent starting pay.
    Nice staff for the most part.

    Cons

    Absolutely no opportunity to advance, within your classification or to a higher classification.
    Bad administration that is only concerned with their salary increases and increasing your workload.
    Being harrassed to donate to the annual fund drive, and at their designated minimum amount.
    The Human Resources Department is completely dysfunctional and lacks integrity.
    Management is not trained appropriately and it effects staff tremendously.
    They hire new people at higher rates than long-term staff, which may seem fine to a new person, until you need to be trained.

    Advice to Management

    Work on ways to train and advance existing staff and do not bring in new staff at a higher salary.

    I worked at CSU Stanislaus part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedules that revolve around your school schedule. Great work environment.

    Cons

    Not a lot of hours. You start at minimum wage and it is hard to get a raise.

    Advice to Management

    Value your student assistants. They work hard for not a lot of compensation.

    Pros

    The job is easy and steady paced. They are pretty relaxed about what you are allowed to do as well but this may just be a result of being a student worker. There are rarely any issues with regards to customer service.

    Cons

    The pay is minimum wage and due to the low budget, the possibility of getting a raise is very low. The job can be dull and boring when much of the busy work has been done and patron flow is slow.

    Pros

    The students are earnest and seeking to improve themselves for the job market.

    Cons

    The teaching and service load are very high considering the publication requirements. There is word that the teaching load will increase. The state doesn't support higher education adequately, so there are always budget shortfalls which increases competition for funds within the university. The competitive climate creates tensions, and collegiality is very low. Administrative support for faculty is also very low. While collaboration is preaches, the reality is that the university is a classic bureaucracy with autocratic leadership. Outspoken junior faculty beware! Your ideas are not welcome. New ideas are viewed as an insult and threat to those who developed prior ones.

    Advice to Management

    Support faculty. Listen to their ideas. Stop preaching collaboration and punishing people with alternative ideas.

    Pros

    There are events going on regularly around campus that are great ways to bond with fellow coworkers. Your work positively impacts the lives and education of thousands of students. Very relaxed work atmosphere.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be hard to coordinate with other members of the campus community, there are only so many meetings that I can take.

    Advice to Management

    Look into more open and interactive ways to collaborate around campus. Meetings can really slow down projects.
