    I have been working at Kennesaw State University part-time

    Pros

    The freedom given to the GTA's is very nice. We get to teach our classes the way we see fit but still get support from everyone in the stats department.

    Cons

    The GTA position is not available during the summer.

    Pros

    The management is divided into many hierarchical levels. The seniors are very supportive and would go till any extent to help you out in whatever way they can. The campus is great which gives you a great deal of motivation to perform. Nonetheless to say, you're paid really well.

    Cons

    None that I could think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I worked at Kennesaw State University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The student assistants are incredible. Most of my coworkers were great.

    Cons

    The university is changing and growing too fast. Many administrators and/or supervisors are not clear on policies such as vacation/sick leave, inclement weather policies, etc. In my department there seemed to be animosity aimed at the Marietta campus staff.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down. Examine your staff and students' needs before adding more students, classes, etc. The school has gown too fast and there is not enough parking for staff and students, and many students are unable to get into the classes they need for their majors due to sheer numbers of people that need certain classes.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, friendly coworkers, casual environment

    Cons

    Older set very traditional, difficult to bring in new ideas or changes. Lots of laziness

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of people who can't / won't do their job. This university is like a turtle at a hare race due to people's apathy and lack of functionality. We want to be a big school, but our current staff can't hack it

    Pros

    It's regular, honest, rewarding work.

    Cons

    They have little regard for a fair hiring process. It's a sham to usher in foregone conclusions.
