    I have been working at San José State University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, from administrative staff to management. Transparent and respectful communications ethos. Highly diverse student population.

    Cons

    . . . transparent except for the benefits people. Look into health plans and read the fine print so you know what you are getting into.
    Pay rate is not up to Bay Area living expenses and commuting tends to be problematic with an overburdened freeway system (especially 880)

    I have been working at San José State University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    it is a stable job with good benefits but that is about all.

    Cons

    too many managers, most managers are incompetent, dishonest, lazy, and way over paid. union not helpful in protecting staff against harassment from managers. HR works with managers to harass staff. Some faculty do not care about students education. Huge waste of taxpayer money by managers. Bad managers cause lawsuits that should be avoided by disciplining managers instead of HR helping the harassment and blaming the staff victims. Work can be monotonous.

    Advice to Management

    Hire competent managers who care about the university and its staff instead of their own personal political goals.
