    Pros

    Excellent benefits. Right off the bat you get several weeks of paid vacation and based on your work experience you accrued hours off and sick leave every month. Easy place to work and most of the people are very good to work with.

    Cons

    The salary is incredibly low compared to comparable positions. Annualized raises are all but nonexistent. Can be difficult to get a promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Raises need to not just be given to Faculty. Neither faculty nor staff have a job without the other. Raises need to atleast be given every other year (alternating between faculty and staff) and promotions need to be given to people who know the work area instead of out of department transfers or outside hires.

    Pros

    Friendly people, Alva is very supportive of university, good faculty care about students

    Cons
