    I have been working at Coastal Carolina University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the people are lovely to work with, HR is helpful and there is a wonderful work atmosphere on most of the campus and in administration.

    Cons

    They seem to favor recent graduates from their university for jobs over experience. Pay is not great, hence the hiring of newbies. Bad management in some departments and it is virtually impossible to have an unqualified manager removed once they are there, even if they are incompetent at their job, things move at a snails pace.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

    I worked at Coastal Carolina University full-time

    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.
