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

    Pros

    It's great to be working at a place that's goal is to educate and help people in their careers. A solid place to work, awesome environment and great advantages to continuing your education for free! I think working for a university is definitely the best thing out there when you are looking to have a steady job until your dream job comes around.

    Cons

    It would be nice if co-workers got more discounts for food and parking.

    Pros

    Great people! Majority of lower management are the same age range so it's easy to make friends and upper management is great too!

    Cons

    If you live on or near campus it may feel like you never leave! They're a little uptight about some rules.

    Pros

    Many opportunities for research and teaching collaborations. Positive environment. Cross disciplinary approach. Faculty development opportunities, good teaching reputation. Wonderful location.

    Cons

    Salary range is not competitive. There is a need for more resources for research and graduate students. Need increase in availability of travel funds as they are minimal for faculty development.

    Mentoring for new opportunities

    Pros

    If Brett is still there then its still awesome!

    The department should be more responsive and communicate more to the Sr. Dev to have their website more updated and not have students look at outdated information.
