    I worked at University of South Alabama (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good coworkers to work with

    Cons

    Poor pay for the work you are pressured to turn out. In the summer time you can expect 5 to 6 10 & 12 hr days per week. Employees have to work side jobs to survive.. All of the overtime dosen’t go towards vacation or sick time. Evidently HR and upper management don’t know what’s going on in this department or they don’t care.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the employees that are saving the school millions of dollars per year. When you have good employees you should compensate them as such.
