    I have been working at Wayne State part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours that accommodate class schedules.
    Professional development.
    Positive coworker relationships.

    Cons

    Poor management: poor planning, apparent incompetence at times
    Two-faced management: say they're here to support and help us, but won't help if it means extra work for them
    No income: compensated with housing and meal plan, so no income. Not allowed to work elsewhere on campus and off campus work allowance is very limited.
    Occasionally required to do work that is not part of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees. My coworkers and I have little to no faith in the heads of the Wayne State housing department because when important issues concerning us come up, either we are lied to or our questions are avoided.
