  • More team meetings and follow through and carry out decisions that are made in attempt to stop dead work.

What I like about the company

I have had a rough year as far as my health and someone checks on me almost everyday. Brought food crayons and books to the hospital for my family. I would never second guess their commitment to employees

What I dislike about the company

Would like to see the salaries for lower paid employees to be more compatible

Suggestions for improvement

  • There definitely needs to be more incentives I've been with my company for 5 years and I hear employees talk about getting coats jackets iPads Kindles and I feel like there should be more training out of town seminars

What I like about the company

Human resources department allows me to help those who are staff and faculty provide a healthy work environment to care for our students who are number one priority.

What I dislike about the company

It seems like the people who make six figures are the ones who constantly get the huge raises I feel that that should be fairly distributed starting at the bottom of the list
