    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Georgia State University full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Staff discounts at bookstore and nearby restaurants and stores. Leadership at the VP level and above, paid very well. Great networking potential with staff, students, and faculty. Opportunity to immerse with University life and education.

    Cons

    Expensive monthly, staff parking. Very low, noncompetitive for some entry to mid-level jobs. Advancement is slow. Political changes at the GA Legislature ultimately affects you as a state employee. If there are budget cuts, your job may be subject to layoffs or furloughs. Benefits are expensive.

    Pros

    Great way to get college level teaching experience! I was able to teach 5 sections of a course by myself over a year. Lots of chances to interact with students, get familiar with grading, and experience other admin tasks associated with academic life.
