Suggestions for improvement

  • Unsure of advice. It's hard to know how to handle such a large scale college and meet the needs of each individual, especially when the college kids are the center of attention.

What I like about the company

Appalachian State tries to provide events to help employees to connect with each other, HR can be helpful with some things, being interested in Athletics or the Arts help to be engaged and proud to work for the college. Students are great to be around!

What I dislike about the company

They promise wage increases and it takes forever for it to go through. Very liberal and all about free speech but frown upon conservative views.

Company Culture

There is not a lot of professional support of transparency at my workplace

Support from management

there is no well defined support system

Career Development

I do not have any paths to take to climb the ladder

Overall compensation for your work

My salary compared to nationwide averages is far below the average

Company Image

I have issues with the way my employer treats my group of faculty concerning job security

Job Security

I have to re-apply every year, so I do not feel secure in my position

Challenging Work

I teach far too many students to be effective at the level I would like

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would improve the length of the teaching contracts and I would improve the safety and quality of our work space which is very outdated and includes issues with heating, space, and asbestos that have never been addressed.

What I like about the company

I work with fellow teachers that are inspiring and hardworking, and i get a lot of inspiration from them. I also get a lot of job satisfaction through my students and the progress I see them make in my courses, which makes me feel like I am offering a valuable service to my community

What I dislike about the company

I do not like that my employer keeps me in a contingent position where I have to re-apply each year. That compromises my feelings of security, and I think since i have worked there for over twelve years, I deserve some guarantee that my job will still be there next year.

Company Culture

I work with good, down to earth people who live similar lives as I do

Freedom to work independently

Supervisor visits are rare.

Internal Communication

They treat their employees like actual people.

Work-Life Balance

A steady schedule with voluntary weekend event opportunities.

Challenging Work

Housekeeping is pretty easy, with the occasional big mess.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would like to learn more about aspects outside of my job, like what happens to the recycling we take out and how my job affects other areas of the campus.

What I like about the company

Everyone I've been in contact with has been super nice and helpful. The training was thorough and informative. I have also become more self-conscious of the environment and environment-friendly procedures. The pay and benefits make this job worth it and I see myself staying here for a long time.

What I dislike about the company

I don't share some of the beliefs of the chancellor of the college which affect me but I can't really do anything about it. It is difficult to get to work in harsh weather conditions but I am essential staff which means I have to come regardless.
