    I have been working at Wayne State full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good medical benefits and vacation time.

    Cons

    Management encourages intimidation:
    1. Managers are remote from employees
    2. The intimidator is part of management “club”
    3. Management seems to deal with the intimidator/s
    4. Intimidation is rewarded
    5. Effort to appease a workplace intimidator

    Intimidating and manipulative behavior by management and (higher ranking workers) is the norm rather than the exception. Dysfunctional relationships among employees is the norm.
     Gossip and criticism are the standard, where cliques lead to favoritism and feuding. Hiring is done by a network of cronyism and nepotism. There are no clear objectives in many functions, so it can be tough to determine what’s important and what isn’t

    Incompetent or or powerless human resource department:
    Human resource (“HR”) managers are either unable or unwilling to deal with rampant workplace intimidation, rule violations, or poor hiring practices.

    Advice to Management

    Fire half of the middle/upper management, make opportunities for employees to grow (not just friends/family of the managers or other employees), take a HONEST assessment of HR procedures.

    I worked at Wayne State part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly people, nice working environment. Everybody has been so helpful, and the teachers and classes were set well. I like the lab rotation in the first year, which helps me decide which lab I'd like to pursue for my degree.

    Cons

    The class list is limited - not diversified. Many state-of-art technologies are not offered in class. Students are kinda separate from job market. Not many opportunities for students to gain experience before graduation, thus it was difficult for them to find a good job. Also, the academic communication between Wayne State and other schools are not active.

    Advice to Management

    Help students get more opportunities to find jobs.
