    I worked at Central Connecticut State University (More than 3 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.

    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 (More than a year)

    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.

    I worked at Central Connecticut State University part-time

    Pros

    The students are great, hard working and not your typical college students, many are commuters and work full-time outside of school. The Business school was a great department to work for because of management, supervisors, & the work that was being done. My ideas and suggestions were implemented and respected.

    Cons

    I worked here part-time through graduate school, earned my Master's degree, and still couldn't find any potential job growth at the university. Did the work of a full-time employee but could never advance at the university because there are ZERO jobs. Many employees who work here have been at the university forever and they are stuck in their old ways and habits, they don't change with the times which is detrimental to this university. They need more employees but can't hire because of budget cuts, etc. Changes take 10 years to happen, slow university.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that higher education isn't the same as what it was in 1995. Expand your horizons, think outside the box, understand and familiarize the current trends of higher education, and implement change!
