    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Columbia Southern University full-time (More than 5 years)


    Rewarding, Assisting Veterans, Flexible Work Schedule, Travel, Quality of Life, Home Office, Meeting new people daily, education awareness


    Supervisors leadership ability, lowest paid college reps in circuit, political atmosphere in house, hostile work environment created and unaddressed when presented, no vision realistic of future cutbacks, too many supervisors not qualified for positions or inability to perform

    Advice to Management

    Address issues when presented verses firing quality employees, Learn a variety of leadership styles one shoe does not fit all, Stop playing the political game and be yourself taking care of your employees earning their trust, Keep employees informed not in the dark, explain why changes are happening, understand 1 complaint is a personality issues for 1 person, 7 complaints from 7 people is a problem with leadership. Military needs to lead military, Fire lead fire, and police lead police. To many unqualified leaders and employees to maintain the status of past years.
