    Pros

    Good benefits. Feeling of unity campus-wide and support from the community. Vibrant and active campus. Plenty of activities for students to attend.

    Cons

    Salary not great. Compared with the salaries of other executive aides whose job descriptions are the equivalent or involve less responsibilities than those at ETSU, the pay leaves much to be desired.

    Advice to Management

    Advocate for better staff salaries. Don't expect accounting skills from executive aides who are not skilled/trained in accounting.

    I worked at East Tennessee State part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Pays for Tuition Fees plus Stipend
    -Flexible Hours

    Cons

    A full-time permanent employee exhibited EXTREMELY inappropriate behavior and supervisors did nothing about it. Instead of reprimanding said employee, I was moved to a different part of the office, which isolated me and worsened my mental state causing me to drop out of the program.

    Advice to Management

    Fix your sexism problem - this will start at the top. Brian Noland is a pox on this university. I took my sexual harassment claim straight to him and he did nothing.
