Suggestions for improvement

  • Better wages, competitive with the industry. Location of work space and more effort for professional development. 100% tuition for employees.

What I like about the company

I was able to complete my masters degree with their tuition assistance. I've also had the opportunity to move up. I feel challenged often and believe they try to be open with their communication. I do believe our state school lays more for the same positions.

What I dislike about the company

I believe more focus and resources should be put into student services. I think the location struggle, and there is a large homeless population.

I do not do what I was hired to do
