Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

I have been working at University of Oklahoma full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Benefits are extremely generous with teacher's retirement still an option. Basic medical insurance for the employee is 100% covered.

Cons

Low, unfairly distributed wages, even for Oklahoma, and very difficult to climb the corporate ladder.

Advice to Management

Overhaul the pay system to allow for merit raises AND seniority raises.

    I worked at University of Oklahoma part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is a strong and positive community among Resident Advisers. Students will find that it is possible to work on homework during work hours occasionally. One can gain a lot of interpersonal experience from this job: interacting with supervisors, coworkers, and students.

    Cons

    Supervisors are hit-or-miss. While the job is touted as "part-time" and supervisors emphasize that every employee is "a student first," work interferes with school quite regularly. Posted hours, staff meetings, and scheduled work time doesn't do this so much; it's the irregular work (Tour days, following up with a student, hosting events, mandatory staff events) that come in conflict with academics. This would have been mitigated with some good communication, but unfortunately, communication was frequently lacking. Because of the nature of the job, you are "on call" 24-7 unless you are on a pre-approved work leave for the day.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate expectations clearly and early. For mandatory events, communicate the details early enough for students to plan their schedules around it. Also, be flexible and understanding when a student doesn't complete an unexpected assignment (Such as following up with a student) quickly; exams, papers, and other circumstances sometimes don't allow the project to be completed as quickly as expected.

    I worked at University of Oklahoma full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Technology was top notch, professors were very knowledgeable with open office doors, provided plenty of computing power to get the job done.

    Cons

    The overall feeling I had was that of a hands-off growth approach to grad students with little unsolicited advice or guidance given. For some, this may prove challenging.
