    Pros

    If you are determined and apply to many positions as a student, you are bound to get a job.

    The pay cap is at minimum wage, so unless you have extensive certification or training you won't be getting a raise.

    Advice to Management

    Lift the pay cap to keep loyal student workers.

    Pros

    Co-workers are nice and pleasant - willing to assist

    Cons

    No pay raises or advancement opportunities as an entry level staff member regardless of educational advancements. Zero recognition for advancing your education. Always hire from the outside, leaving no encouragement for current employees to apply for jobs posted.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your current employees and stop treating your staff as if they do not make a difference for the university.

    Pros

    Aggressive, forward-looking philosophy that has grown the school exponentially in nearly every way over the last ten years.

    Cons

    Surrounding area is dodgy at best, crime-ridden at worst. Gated communities are there for a reason.

    Pros

    Great state employer with benefits. Exciting to be part of a rapidly growing university.

    Cons

    To grow, the university has dropped admission criteria. The reporting is largely spun to avoid accepting or addressing this.

    Advice to Management

    Assessment requires an honest look at your current situation and realistic view of the short-term aspirations.
