  • Limited terms on Dean's positions. Anonymous reporting for employees who feel they are being singled out due to gender or refuse to play office politics

Suggestions for improvement

  • The only thing I would change is the parking situation.

What I like about the company

Marshall has been my home for a long time. I got my undergrad degree here, and I was ecstatic to receive a job working for a university I love. It is rich in history and community. Marshall is a family. I am so happy to start my career and advance my skills even more here.

What I dislike about the company

The only problem I have with working at Marshall is that we do not receive free parking. We must pay for parking passes to come to work, and even then it is not guaranteed that we will get a spot. It is a bit frustrating.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The culture seems to be a little more restrictive than before. Time clocks have been instituted for staff. Flex time has been eliminated More trust should be placed with the staff. Eliminate some layers of management. There are too many managers and not enough employees to manage. Be consistent in enforcing policies. Full-time faculty should not be permitted to live out of state and fly in to work a few times a semester while staff are strictly held to the time clock.

What I like about the company

Most of my coworkers are team players and willing to answer questions. The hours are very flexible. The South Charleston campus offers free parking. Medical/dental/vision/hearing insurance is provided, and the benefits are excellent. Life insurance is complimentary. A retirement account is available. Your contract is for 10 months, but you have the option of working the summer for more pay.

What I dislike about the company

There's a few too many layers of management, and a bit of a disconnect from the main campus in Huntington. Our state budget has been cut, so there's not a lot of money available for travel and conferences. Like with any place, there's a few unpleasant people, but those are few and far between.
