    I have been working at Jacksonville State University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This job requires a lot of analytical thinking, problem solving, and is very flexible with the hours.

    Cons

    There is many government laws to learn. Have to stay updated on the laws frequently. This is job can be stressful.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Jacksonville State University (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good first job / work place experience. Hands on approach. New challenges every day. Professors and students are easy to assist. No complications.

    Cons

    Minimum wage. As a student-worker you are not allowed to work over 20 hours even if you need the job. Which is fair, considering there are other students, and more importantly, you are a student first before a worker.

    Pros

    Engaged employer/easy to get constructive feedback, administration willing to go the extra mile for employees

    Cons

    very mission oriented and with that perhaps a more narrow focus on some of the higher-ed objectives.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Jacksonville State University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best medical in the state. Same paid vacation time as students (spring break, thanksgiving, christmas, etc.) Great first job.

    Cons

    No room for growth. A lot of office politics. Hard to get in if you don't know someone already.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more room for growth and promotions.

    Current Employee - Graduate Assistant in Jacksonville, AL

    I have been working at Jacksonville State University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Overall my experience as a graduate assistant at the MCIS department of JSU has been positive. I have had experience with teaching my own freshman course, which has made me more confident in public speaking and gave me the opportunity to design projects for students. The instructors and professors of the department are very enthusiastic and always have interesting research and projects to work on.

    Cons

    The tuition remission does not cover the online fee of courses, and all courses in the computer science graduate program are online.

    Pros

    Free housing comes with the job. In addition, you get a monthly paycheck. You save over $2000 by getting a free room each semester.

    Cons

    You have to work on their schedule. Additionally, the pay sucks. It is not even enough to live off of as a college student.

    Advice to Management

    Pay should be increased yearly based on seniority.

    Lack of defined duties and responsibilities.

    Set better goals and there will not be nearly as many chiefs.
