Suggestions for improvement

  • Cut back the politics - management has become uber political. Constructive criticism of the upper echelon doesn't seem to be well accepted. A number of the buildings are VERY old and sick; it would be nice if the state could free some funds for remediation. Finding a way to share the campus experience and benefits of a campus office with off-site personnel would be wonderful, but 30 minute lunches do not allow for the ability to travel and participate. Instate merit raises - pay people what they are worth so that they stay and dump the dead wood.

What I like about the company

I work with good people in a small department. This is a state institution, so job security is not much of an issue. The benefits are good. Working on campus is a lot of fun and provides many events and opportunities that are not available to those of us in satellite offices. My work is personally rewarding and allows me to feel like I am giving back to the community at large.

What I dislike about the company

There is tremendous difficulty getting raises. Merit raises do not exist, or at least are not available in my department. I haven't had a raise beyond 2-3% in 9 years due to State restrictions on public pay. Downward communication (I've worked in 2 different departments, 1 in the hospital, which is a private entity and 1 at the university) is poor. Human Resources doesn't act as an employee advocate. This institution is still very much a man's world.
