    I worked at South Dakota State full-time

    Pros

    great benefits and retirement system especially
    decent pay

    Cons

    problems in department will not be addressed by higher ups
    more flex time would be nice for employees but this depends on departement

    Advice to Management

    don't really have any other input. each department seems to be very different. would be nice to have a better system for resolving employee/supervisor conflicts and to have accountability

    Pros

    South Dakota State University has a great community and offers great experience for students while they are still attending college.

    Cons

    The only down side is that students are only allowed to work so many hours and they are not enough for students who have bills to pay. There for the students have to sometimes have second jobs while being a full time student.
