    I worked at Southern Utah University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    descent salary pay, new nicely equipped aircraft and fleet. Good maintenance department.

    Cons

    Bad management, Poor policies enforcement and creation. Good to work for until they need to change policy or requirements in there best interest and will turn on there own employees to save there own back. They will create lies to make themselves look right, and management is egotistical. Beware they will not support you or have your back when you need it and wont hesitate to screw you over even if it makes them look better but hurts them financially. Check airmen are also inexperienced and very egotistical, have heard lots of lies said behind peoples back. Not very good communication or leadership skills involved. They will also find ways to write up instructors whenever they want that are borderline illegal and definitely against school policies, but HR wont acknowledge it.

    Advice to Management

    Stop twisting peoples words into lies to make yourself look better, check your ego, maybe actually support your instructors fully and financially without creating ridiculous and arbitrary standards, and get a hold of your check airmen who are spreading false rumors and information. Some of these checks had zero instruction experience and thought they knew how to run the place over someone with vastly more experience than them.

    I have been working at Southern Utah University full-time (More than 8 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.
