Suggestions for improvement

  • 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

What I like about the company

The benefits packages are good, especially if you are single. There are opportunities to advance, but they are not consistent. Work environment can be positive. Provide coffee and snacks some days.

Leadership of the main campus is good. Communication with employees is consistent.

What I dislike about the company

Lack of growth and opportunities to move up.

Leadership who pick sides and do not provide feedback to employees

  • 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.
