    I worked at Winona State University part-time

    Pros

    Working on campus at Winona State while being a full time student was the best job decision I could have made. Schedules were very flexible with class times and group projects. It was also convenient 'business hours' and no weekends!

    Cons

    Training for learning ITSM database could be better, I was just thrown into it and expected to learn on the job.

    Advice to Management

    Work on training part time student workers better.

    I have been working at Winona State University full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Small campus, Friendly staff, Well-mannered students, Reasonably good equipment, Good library,

    Cons

    Higher education system is messed up; low budget, union, lack of leadership, superficial accountability.

    Advice to Management

    The faculty who work hard have provided you with all the reasons you need to get rid of the faculty who don't and spend their time chasing politics and making life difficult for everyone. Stand up against the IFO union, evaluate the faculty and fire the dead weights....

    I worked at Winona State University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Faculty are represented by a union so the pay and benefits (for tenured faculty) are better than at most state colleges.

    Cons

    Many departments are decades behind the most current research and best practices in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Work on updating your department, course offerings, and course names - it is long overdue.

    I worked at Winona State University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My supervisor was very helpful and I felt comfortable reaching out to him whenever needed.

    Cons

    The software used in 2013 to open and close calls felt very outdated. There were so many steps that even after a few months of doing the same thing over and over again I needed a sheet to review how to complete the steps. Now that it's 2017 I'm sure the software is now better.
