    I have been working at Ohio University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are nice, and reasonably priced
    100% tuition discount for employee and dependents

    Cons

    Micromanaging by people who don't always understand how the position works
    Lack of quality communication between superiors/employees

    Advice to Management

    Do your homework - learn about all of the different jobs you oversee. There are times you think you know best, but you have no idea what really needs to happen for that employee to be successful. Ask questions and be engaged.

    All of the management is very kind and helpful, and if a parent or student was too difficult to speak to they always picked up those calls.

    Cons

    I got fired for having a major depressive episode, so that was rough.
