    Pros

    Helps having free room and board. Provides great experiences that can transfer into the workforce.

    Cons

    Management seems to be focused more on catching students breaking policy as apposed to teaching students. Workload is unreasonable.

    Advice to Management

    Over all, it seems as though there are two main areas that needs improvement. First, making sure employees feel as though they have a voice. Second making sure employees have all the informations necessary to them so that they can perform their jobs effectively. In my professional opinion it is important that these open lines of communication are maintained to help provide a more pleasant and effective environment for students.

    Administrative decisionsat SCSU can take time to percolate.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to foster applied graduate education program strategic initiatives in the Twin Cities!
