I worked at Eastern Michigan University full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I found a lot of support across departments. People are friendly and willing to help.

Cons

The budget is at the mercy of the economy. It didn't make sense to install the "superprofessor" pay at a time when the university needs to retire as many as are willing to do so.

Advice to Management

Keep progressing towards greater organizational compliance to best practices such as performance reviews, merit pay, etc

    Pros

    The people are passionate and many parts are very team oriented. I enjoyed much of my time working in the IT department for this reason.

    Cons

    The facility needs updating across the board. Residential, and many classroom buildings are quite out of date


  2. "Lab assistant job was quite fulfilling"

    I worked at Eastern Michigan University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Got to know the curriculum better and enjoyed helping other students. Instructors are helpful and I believe the pay was about $10hr.

    Cons

    2 days a week and minimal pay. Can get confusing when students have no ideal what is going on. Not enough authority to make your own decisions, i.e. you have to wait on the instructor to give you the ok.

    Advice to Management

    Give your lab assistants more hours. Maybe have them tutor as well after hours.
