Suggestions for improvement
- I wish they would re-instate the assistant communications director. I wish there was an opportunity to be paid over-time for salaried employees, especially since I work overtime a lot.
What I like about the company
I love my co-workers and bosses! We have fun together in a laid-back environment. We have great hours (8 a.m.-3:30 p.m.), great time off and work in a nice, clean building. I enjoy working with college students and we have some fun and interesting events on campus that I get to be a part of.
What I dislike about the company
I wish we had more money, but state budget cuts have hurt us (and every state institution in Mississippi). That means, there isn't much they can do for a raise (I got a little one, but nothing huge) and there used to be an assistant communications director position, which I would be the one chosen for if it still existed, but they had to eliminate the position before I started working here because of the budget. It's just disheartening to work hard, but know I can't advance unless I leave here (my boss has been in his position for almost 20 years with no plans to leave).
