    I have been working at Wright State University full-time

    Pros

    Still great benefits and nice working atmosphere in general. Tuition remission for employee and also for dependents is great.

    Cons

    Financial crisis and current cost cutting has made it tough to get things done currently. Some employees are still living in the past which won't solve anything

    Advice to Management

    Need to refocus on what Wright State means to the community and what potential students are currently looking for in higher education.

    Pros

    Great colleagues who have your back. Leadership, not so much.

    Pay below market value. Now that they've retracted numerous benefits (#days vacation/sick, health insurance quality, etc), it is less competitive.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Wright State University full-time

    Pros

    Good co workers and environment

    Cons

    The university is under extreme budget cuts and has lost or eliminated a large amount of its workforce. The morale is low and the work load has increased. Anyone able to find another job elsewhere is actively looking. There is no light at the end of this tunnel. Each time we get an update on the financial condition for the University, it is worse than the last report.

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

    Pros

    -Training included/ no prior
    -Great staff to work with
    -You schedule your own hours and very accommodating

    Cons

    -Training was a little weak; could use more practice rather than just a lecture.
    -Scheduling and timesheet online were a little hard to use.
    -Pay is a little low and is part-time work

    Advice to Management

    Add more practice or mentoring from more experienced SI leaders to the training rather than just a lecture.
