    I have been working at William Paterson University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    State benefits are the best reasons to work for this company. With Fridays off in the summer and the ability at the end of the year to earn 4 days of comp time, these perks are pretty cool. If you are looking for a place to start your career then this is the place to be. All in all, I'm glad to have a job.

    Cons

    Promotions are difficult. Everyone is competing for the same job that is posted. My salary is $32, 416.90 though I have 9 years of office. a bachelors and master's degree. I got my foot in the door as a clerk typist making $28k. With a union, there is a yearly increase of your salary but my cap is at $36k. So unless you get a promotion you are losing money over time.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees. Provide a means of promotion that will allow employees to feel as those they are truly getting what they are worth.
