    As a graduate student, I had enough flexibility in my position to maintain high academics. My position also covered my tuition expenses, and provided me opportunities to gain valuable and applicable work experience for my future.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Edinboro University full-time

    Pros

    It is a very small department, and people in the department are nice. The campus is rural and in a picturesque setting.

    Cons

    Being unionized means there is a constant low-level antagonism.
    Power is valued over truth--we want to win rather than be really accurate about how things are going.
    There are no standards for admissions, so there is a constant struggle to teach graduate materials to people who should not have been allowed to graduate from high-school.
    Probably true everywhere: Millenials have a sense of entitlement, and the University does not want to [annoy] them off by by demanding they meet a standard.

    Advice to Management

    Bust the union.
    It takes guts to demand high levels of performance for high grades--but it might be the only way to survive.

    I have been working at Edinboro University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment, friendly staff and most problems resolved within a reasonable time.

    Cons

    Big picture projects take time to happen. Funding is very hard within the cinema department.

    Advice to Management

    Give each cinema professor a card to purchase funds on for their classes. Or allow receipt reimbursement.

    Pros

    Tuition waive and stipend were great

    Cons

    You are approached and treated by leadership like you're expected to screw up at any time. You are not treated as a young professional, even after proving yourself as such,

    Advice to Management

    Stop expecting failure out of your GAs and place higher expectations on them.
