    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Wright State University full-time

    Pros

    None. This is a charter school based govt funding that is clearly manipulated and mismanaged. Bait-and-switch tactics are used on out-of-state doctoral students to to lock them into contract jobs where they are paid several hundred dollars less than what they originally agreed to during the phone interview.

    Cons

    Low pay. Bait & switch tactics during interview. Graduate grade faking. Academic extortion. Back door grade faking on Psych Portal software to manipulate TA performance & ratings. Required PhD coursework not relevant to actual industry. Faculty ignorant of industry standards. Psych dept faculty rude and unprofessional, demonstrating clear bias.

    Advice to Management

    Review the graduate student complaints on these select faculty and fire these people.

    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
