Reviews

Company Culture

It's both good and bad. It's a great environment on a daily basis, but overall leadership micromanages and oppresses workers.

Internal Communication

Communication is not great and is one of the biggest weaknesses of the company.

Challenging Work

Challenging but fun!

Suggestions for improvement

  • The culture in its entirety needs to change from leadership down. People of color and LGBTQ+ persons do not feel comfortable working there and do not stay for long.

What I like about the company

I am given the freedom to run my department the way that I want for the most part. There are a lot of professional development opportunities. I get to work with great people for the most part.

What I dislike about the company

Upper management can become too involved in the daily running of things which can make it difficult to do my job. Everything is so siloed that it is hard to create innovative projects. Communication is terrible between campuses.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Hire more employees and offer higher salaries.

What I like about the company

TAP helps pay for tuition for Graduate Studies. I also love working with students!

What I dislike about the company

Pay is not enough. Not enough employees so stress is put on all.

  • N/A I am completely happy with the entire experience

What I like about the company

I am treated with respect by my peers and supervisors, up to and including the University's President. We receive ample paid sick leave and vacation hours. The salaries are a tad low for the area, but the Administration is trying to fix that. I expect to retire in this job, or at least at UNG, even if it's a different job.

What I dislike about the company

The only negative thing I can say about the University is that the salaries are a bit on the low side. But, in my opinion, the benefits make up for that.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would like to see improvements in communication from upper administration.

What I like about the company

I can't speak for other departments at this location, but my department has always offered me options for growth, offered new work challenges when I wanted them, and have helped me put my family first when needed.

What I dislike about the company

Large upper administration. I think we have too many upper admin positions and could provide the same service with fewer positions that would save the organization money.
