Suggestions for improvement

  • I would do more to create an environment that we are all on the same side and all working for the students. Too often it seems like employees are fighting with administration and the student voice is lost.

What I like about the company

Lots of freedom to do things the way I want to do them

What I dislike about the company

Too much administration and an adversarial relationship between administration and faculty

What I like about the company

I've worked in several departments over the past 20 years, and most of them have been very good. I enjoyed working with a diverse group of people, and my work has been a valuable asset to the University. I feel appreciated, and I feel my input is important.

What I dislike about the company

Unless you have at least a 4 year degree, it is difficult to advance.

The following perks were offered to me

Suggestions for improvement

  • The faculty union is really preventing the university from prospering and growing. The unionized contracts of that group are fantastic for faculty - but at a tremendous expense that makes it very difficult for the university to compete with other schools,

What I like about the company

I have worked at FSU for 22 years. While individual managers can make or break a department, overall I really appreciate my employer and enjoy my job.

What I dislike about the company

There are a few individuals in management positions that make questionable decisions and in some cases, decisions that are self-serving, but that kind of thing goes on in virtually every jobsite in the country.
