    I worked at Wayne State full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Tuition; holiday closure; benefits and nice campus

    Cons

    Older, experienced employees at a higher salary are often laid off/displaced/forced to retire. External candidates w/degrees from on-line/remote colleges are favored more than WSU degreed internal employees. Lots of cliches.

    Advice to Management

    Hire/retain competent, knowledgable managers/supervisors; not those who "know someone" to obtain their position.

    I have been working at Wayne State part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Daily exposure to print media, Client interaction, and corporate level design and branding standards. Really relaxed schedule—you basically get to pick your shift during the open hours. The sense of community is also strong, Expect weekly rundowns with the other designers to figure out what is working, what we all can do to reduce stress, and how we can be more efficient. A lot of technical design practice, Management is really nice and understanding as well.

    Cons

    Maxed at 20 hours a week due to student status, and it's not enough on its own to afford midtown Detroit. Client oriented work, so do not expect to create anything groundbreaking or experimental, it's much more design than it is art.

    Advice to Management

    Put more trust into the designers here, we want this place to grow. Other than that you guys are awesome!
