    I have been working at Southern Utah University full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Positive atmosphere, fun place to work. You feel like you're making a difference for students. For Cedar City there are few employers that offer benefits like SUU does, even if the pay isn't the highest.

    Cons

    Politics, various departments making power plays. One day they can't run things without you, the next day you're expendable. Too much ready, fire, aim, instead of ready, aim fire. HR policies are distorted to fit the whims of administration. Not many opportunities for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    People will walk through fire for you when they feel what they do matters, and that they are valued. Don't take advantage of that.

      Former Employee - Loss Prevention Officer in Cedar City, UT

      I worked at Southern Utah University part-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      At least you’ll make $8 an hour

      Cons

      Pay is minimum, not a good chance for increases. Deal mostly with upset customers and university staff. Large amount of work for little pay.
