Pros

Very healthy and supportive work environment. Energy and enthusiasm in the air. Good facilities. Easy access to good food and clubs on campus.

Cons

Not enough compensation, especially when compared to other Big Ten public schools. Climate can get very cold and rough in winter.

Advice to Management

Need to appreciate the employees through better compensation, especially because West Lafayette is not one of the cheap cities of United States. Reduce paperwork and increase online transactions.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Job Security great place for individuals that strive to simply get by in life. No drug tests or background checks required for most position. Great place to work. Faculty has life time job security.

    Cons

    Mediocre performance is rewarded.
    Tuition Assistance policy is horrible for a premier research institution.
    Compensation practices are horrible. Compensation is based on date of hire not experience. I could have more experience than someone working in my department but get paid less based on date of hire.
    Reduced benefits and flat salary with no expectation of an increase.
    This place doesn't place value on diversity.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to Senior Leadership is none. They are aware of the issues with the University and choose to do nothing to improve.

    Pros

    As an RA you get a full ride, which is very helpful to students at Purdue. It also allows you to meet many different people.

    Cons

    The pros far outweigh the cons, although it is hard to have a social life.
