    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Governors State University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    State job, 6 credit hours of free tuition, good benefits, some positions union. Colleagues are generally friendly and helpful. Weekends and holidays off.

    Cons

    Some civil service (union) employees not treated fairly. Paid on anticipatory basis so you get screwed out of a last paycheck after you leave. Family Development Center management is not compassionate towards employees.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure all civil service empl are treated fairly across all departments and stop the anticipatory pay
