    I worked at Northern Arizona University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was a teaching assistant for the mechanical engineering department. The pros were: flexible hours, good pay, fun and easy work, and the ability to work while still being in school.

    Cons

    I enjoyed this job very much and found very little not to like about it. The one downside would be the large amount of time spent grading class assignments.

    Advice to Management

    The front desk staff was very helpful with all paperwork required for this job and all the professors I worked for were intelligent and easy to work with. My advice would be keep up the good work.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Northern Arizona University full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    NAU has a wonderful environment to work in. The benefits are the best I've ever had! The people there are wonderful. I loved working there! I was very sad to leave NAU.

    Cons

    Sometimes supervisors can be very mean and have unreasonable expectations and if they are a tenured professor there is nothing that can be done about it The first 11 years I worked there I was promoted 4 times and it was wonderful but when I moved to another area for 8 years the office environment was miserable.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees when it comes to problems with supervisors if it is multiple people with one supervisor....
