    I have been working at Rose State College part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I retired from Rose State as a full-time employee. The college has great benefits, great leadership, and a teamwork focus. Great place to work!

    State budget cuts will unfortunately be a challenge now.

    I worked at Rose State College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Steady employment
    Decent benefits
    Friendly people
    A ton of time off

    Cons

    Incredibly stagnant
    Even minor changes or process improvements must go through multiple levels of approval, sometimes even to the regents
    Most change never ends up happening
    They still do 90% of things on paper, with pens, and filing
    When state budgets are cut, forget about pay raises. I left after the 3rd year with no raise
    They grossly undervalue the worth of their workforce. Pay is around 50-75% of the market rate for any position, and staff positions are 12 months, not 9.
    Because of the low pay, they attract mostly slackers with little ambition

    Advice to Management

    Pay more for true talent and cut the dead wood. Listen to people who want to improve processes. They are trying to drag you into the 19th century. Recognize that cost of living pay increases have to happen every year just to keep up with inflation. Every year you do not give raises, employee purchasing power goes down.

    I have been working at Rose State College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Time off is amazing, the best anyone could ask for. Insurance is good for single employee, but when you start to add family it racks up huge. Very laid back atmosphere.

    Cons

    Pay is very low compared to anyone outside of the education system. Management is nothing to be excited about and they are not on the cutting edge of technology.

    Advice to Management

    Try to put in place the people with talent, some people may do good in interviews, but look at the track record and ask other employees.

    I have been working at Rose State College part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people are nice and the general atmosphere is fairly relaxed. We are allowed to use our own money to buy into the 403B plan, and finally get to use the Wellness Center. Neither costs the college any $, but are nice benefits we had to fight for. Students are great. Most professors are nice.

    Cons

    Campus politics are a royal pain. The salaries for part time employees stinks. When the minimum wage got increased by the federal government last year, they didn't change the differential for degreed, longtime employees. We were frozen in place, instead of being given the sliding scale above minimum wage we had before Washington got involved. They keep claiming no increase in $ from the legislature has cut back all spending, but don't do anything to save $ in the running of the physical plant of the school.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more and less to the politics.

    Pros

    Ample time off
    Very generous benefits package
    Professional work environment
    Friendly work environment
    Tuition paid
    Access to campus amenities such as the Wellness Center
    Very supportive management in my area

    Cons

    Salaries are low compared to most other places, especially for classified staff.
    Tends to be gossip, rumors travel fast and far - more so in some departments than others.

    Advice to Management

    Up your salaries, especially for your classified staff. They truly are the backbone of the college!!
    Treat rumors and gossip as you would bullying - zero tolerance! Many people have been humiliated when rumors have been started or confidential information gets spread through gossip!!

    I have been working at Rose State College full-time

    Pros

    Good sense of community among the employees, fully paid benefits, steady work hours, and lots of holidays.

    Cons

    Being subject to state budget, especially in Oklahoma means that there are times in which your job and the funds to do your job are at risk.
