    I worked at Columbus State University (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Columbus State University is a great work environment. They train their employees thoroughly and have no problem answering questions. I would work there again in a heartbeat.

    Cons

    I have no complaints. Whenever I needed to ask a question, someone answered me with no problem. There were no clicks that made new employees feel unwanted. I wish the project lasted longer.

    Keep up the good work. Your office is pleasant and efficient. When customers, staff , and students come into your office you do your best to send them off satisfied.
