    I have been working at Arkansas State University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A higher ed institution in the Delta with great potential to advance
    Many bright, devoted faculty from across the US
    Laid-back environment, personable and friendly

    Cons

    Academics in management/administration who are the people they can get to take the job for the lowest salary, with NO regard for their management skills or (lack) of vision.
    Little room for professional advancement.
    Many "seat warmer" employees who perform little and still get paid while high performers are often overlooked
    Current chancellor is very isolated; disconnected from faculty and staff (even deans) of all departments.

    Advice to Management

    Decide to invest in your staff members and their professional development. Lose the low performers. You'll get much more for your money in the long-run.


  2. "Research carefully - some departments are VERY toxic"

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Arkansas State University full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Most people are very good to work with, benefits are a little better than most large companies, working on campus is fun and a nice change from a sterile office building

    Cons

    The pay is very below market, you have to pay to park your car, dealing with faculty is like dealing with whiny preschoolers, and upper management couldn't care less about what is happening below them; it's all about looking good for them

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what is happening in your departments.
