i think the culture is that this ia . laidback place to work which offets the lower pay and fewer advancement opportunities
the wrk itself was not overley challenging, but the volume and tme frame for completion made it difficult at times
Suggestions for improvement
- I would have more pay equity. there are full-time workers who barely make enough $ tp get by, while we also have way too many administrators who are given exorbitant salaries. There needs to be more worklife balance for staff. Some faculty are rarely on campus, but staff are here Monday through Friday. There should be opportunities for 4-day work week, or remote work. Please, paid parental leave for the staff should match that given to faculty.
What I like about the company
being in environment of higher ed pushes you to continuously improve your own education. There are opportunities for advancement but you have to seek them out yourself. You have to be driven to keep moving up, which will probably also require moving out of your department to seek more challenging work. In my experience, promotions were rare. In some cases, people had to leave the university and then come back in order to be considered for higher-level jobs.
What I dislike about the company
there needs to be more structure to career advancement. More mentorship, more intentional guidance to develop workers. the qualities and skills of workers need to be recognized and cultivated, but too many seem content with the status quo. There is a lot of turnover among the staff, and the administration should be taking steps to hang on to talent and grooming workers so they keep advancing while making longterm contributions to the institution.
