Pros

If you are from the community, it is extremely convenient. Chances are, you will know a lot of people there, and if not you will grow to know people and not be displeased. Working at EKU was like a big family, seems like we all know each other and that's about a great a working environment as you could want.

Cons

The only one I can really think of is the fact that some of the older people in management might need to move on. Seems like a lot of tools end up in charge and things can go from great to lame pretty quick. Sometimes it's bad enough that you stop to wonder how they even got that far, but it's not super bad as I did enjoy my time there.

Advice to Management

Some people really need to be evaluated for effective leadership skills. Others really need their work looked at, it seems like there is a lot of glaring errors and they go unnoticed.

    Pros

    Good people - The hierarchy is pretty approachable and open to new ideas. There seems to be some good changes taking place and Eastern needs to capitalize on thier strengths and continue to seek out quality students and invest in them staying. The retirement plan is very good, and the benefits are not bad as well. Free parking for employees is a plus, but parking nazis need help with customer service!

    Cons

    The infrastructre of the University needs work and quality of students is low. Eastern really needs to invest in more mentoring and personal contact with students, not more in electronic resources, which is very impersonal.

    Advice to Management

    think forward for retention and don't hesitate to hire outside people enough money to bring new ideas.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Eastern Kentucky University part-time

    Pros

    If you are a self starter this is the place for you! You can be creative, add to research as well as expose yourself to the wide scope of knowledge that the professors each uniquely provide.

    Cons

    Depending on your focus you may not be challenged. If you want to focus more on the science, only one or two professors will challenge you in that area.

    Advice to Management

    Great department head for graduate assistants in exercise science department st EKU.
