Suggestions for improvement

  • Improved transparency in decision making. Including proper offices when making policy decisions. Less money spent on athletics and more on student services.

What I like about the company

My office is a great place to work. I feel supported by my boss and co-workers. My boss does everything she can to make sure we know how valued we are and appreciates the work we do.

What I dislike about the company

There could be a lot more transparency in decision making at higher levels. The executive spend tons of money on athletics when most of the students need other services before they need a football team. We could save a lot by reducing athletics.

What I like about the company

EMU has helped me grow first as a student and then as a professional. I work among people who are truly both mentors and friends, a listening ear when I need one. It's lovely to know that even if our work is stylistically different, we all work towards the same goal of student success. I appreciate the emphasis on employee autonomy and decision making as well as the value placed on continued professional development and research. The health benefits are some of the best offered by a university in the state!

What I dislike about the company

Upper administration does not allocate money to "Education First,"" as is our motto. Every department suffers from budget cuts each year (despite rising tuition costs and enrollment) while athletics grows theirs. We're not a Big 10 school so I wish we didn't act like our budget was that of a Big 10 school. It's a constant disappointment."
