Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at San José State University full-time

Pros

My skills were needed, and most of the people were receptive, but one co-worker made them leery of working with me.

Cons

People were entrenched in their jobs and couldn't envision any changes.

Advice to Management

Get rid of the sick person who intimidates everyone and makes working there extremely unpleasant.

    No opinion of CEO

    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)
