Great hours, and lots of vacation. Great people to talk to and very easy to get settled in at your position

Make management salary higher while scanning employees better to have better workers. Adjust budget to compensate for athletic teams and funding

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    It is really a community environment at Ferris State University. The small town makes for an environment where it is easy to get to know people. They are flexible with time off and half days when you need to take care of personal business.

    Cons

    The small town can sometimes limit people in their personal and professional growth. There is a limit to how far you can go at a University of this size.

    Advice to Management

    They can do a better job of providing assistants to departments in need. I know they do a lot of shifting around to save jobs but leave some departments hanging with out a lot of support for the department.
