    I worked at Dickinson State University part-time

    The director is one of the best people you will ever meet. The program is the most empirically valid method of athletic development in existence.

    Some kids are there for the social environment.

    Expand the program.

    I worked at Dickinson State University full-time

    Pros

    Excellent Network of coworkers who will

    Cons

    If the state board of higher education has to slash something, everything feels the hurt at a university. This happens all too often in ND. It ties your management's hands to make rough decisions because of fickle funding.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating state of the university to employees. It's important that they know what is happening at the state level so they know if they will have a job!

    I worked at Dickinson State University full-time

    Pros

    Good flex time and vacation time. People are pleasant and nice. The campus is well kept and beautiful. Great facilities for athletics.

    Cons

    Salaries for the university are well below the cost of living due to the oil in the area. There is virtually no affordable housing and the nearest "city" is over two hours away.
