    I worked at Georgia State University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    good hours and paid holidays

    Cons

    unhealthy work environment created by micro management from directors, payroll issues, unorganized, a lot of employees quit during the school year, including managers, the department did not allow hiring mid school year and the job that I applied for and was hired for was not the job I ended up with.

    Advice to Management

    Become more organized, allow more hiring, don't try to micro manage the employees you already put in a difficult position if you are not willing to help and pitch in with the actual labor.

    I worked at Georgia State University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and tuition assistance.

    Cons

    Extremely low salaries. Limited career opportunities
     for minorities. It was difficult to work with people who never worked outside the institution. Their experience and insights were limited and they were most focused on retiring. Very insecure about their titles.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify your workforce.

    I worked at Georgia State University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's not a demanding job, very easy. The TAP program is the only best benefit, unless you meet tenure.

    Cons

    Very stagnant position, the pay is NOT good. The culture is "take care of yourself." Who wants to work for a company that's big on expanding in Atlanta versus compensating their employees due to inflation? Or who wants to work at a company that offers little to no career growth?


  10. "The most up and coming university out there."

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

    Pros

    An extremely wholesome and supportive work environment. The university is growing by leaps and bounds, and the faculty and staff are growing with it in both quality and quantity. A fantastic place to work overall.

    Cons

    Obviously the main campus is situated in downtown Atlanta, which can make the commute a bit tricky if you live a fair piece. MARTA can make it easy, though.
