      I have been working at Central Connecticut State University full-time

      Pros

      State retirement benefits but I was driven out before being vested

      Cons

      Unfettered workplace harrassment with an ineffective diversity officer. If you do not fit the typical profile don’t bother working there. You will be harassed and demeaned until you leave.

      Neutral Outlook
      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Central Connecticut State University for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Close by, constantly expanding and upgrading physical resources, lots of technology in the classroom. Many great, motivated students

      Cons

      At the time I was there, the communication with adjuncts was minimal (at least in my department), which was a disservice to the students we served.

      Advice to Management

      Ensure that departments include adjuncts in their meetings, planning and communication to provide the best experience for the students.

      Negative Outlook

      I have been working at Central Connecticut State University full-time

      Pros

      The colleagues who haven't completely mailed it in are enjoyable to work with.

      Cons

      The university administration and business school administration are ill-equipped to handle the budget issues. The business school administration lacks the competency to handle basic matters, and selectively and inconsistently evaluates performance.

        I worked at Central Connecticut State University part-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Flexible with school classes. Decent pay. Good people usually. Work isn’t hard. Just long hours. Usually set up break down equipment during shows.

        Cons

        Long hours of just sitting there and monitoring equipment. Usually doing nothing. You have to deal with rude clients that don’t care about you even though you tell them you’re just trying to help.
