Gender Equality

If you are a favorable employee(s) you may have an opportunity to climb up the ladder.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Yes, they great with hiring friends and family members. Yes they do hire older workers too!

Career Development

If you are a favorable employee you can climb up the letter of opportunities.

Overall compensation for your work

It's best to negotiate your salary at the very beginning of employment. Although they give pay increases if you have a good performance evaluation. Your increase will not be noticeable if you are not a favorable employee. Just that simple!

Company Image

The university itself could be a awesome place to work if the upper administrative was reevaluated

Challenging Work

Administrative Assistants does a variety of work from procurement, HR, accounting, student hire, auditing,travel, budgeting and much more. You are hired to work for a department but is overworked doing other duties that other departments should be doing.

Inclusive / Diverse

It's the department head way or the highway - If you are a favorable employee(s) your ideas may be heard.

Suggestions for improvement

  • NOT all manager BUT most! Talk to your employee(s) with respect and stop showing favoritism.

What I like about the company

Enjoyed the country environment

What I dislike about the company

I didn't like that the upper administrative shows favoritism to certain employees. Their is no support system and the over workload that is put on one individual. Their hiring process totally needs changing.

Support from management

Management is concerned with what benefits themselves. The needs of the students are secondary to egos. New ideas are not considered unless you are apart of a select very bias group.

Overall compensation for your work

You are not paid for the work you do. They do not pay overtime but they may give you comp hours... Maybe!

Work-Life Balance

You are always expected to stay late no matter what you have going on in your personal life. The hour are long and you are not compensated.

What I like about the company

The best part of working at Prairie View was the opportunity to work with students.

What I dislike about the company

In didn't like the hours or the pay. Management did not care about employees. The communication was terrible.
