Suggestions for improvement

  • The committee system of interviewing and hiring is time consuming and ultimately false, as dept. heads know how to work the system and hire who they want regardless. Things only appear to be fair and equal. I've definitely seen sexual harassment and sexism, as in 'I'm hiring some testosterone." Very little feeling of support for those on the ground level.

What I like about the company

I've met some fantastic smart supportive people, and I've learned a lot. It's the first time in my life that I've worked with overwhelmingly educated people, and I enjoy the exchanges of ideas. Sick and family leave is generous, and I've had to use it taking care of my mother. They truly want you to stay home when you are ill, and don't punish you for it AND are supportive when family duties call.

What I dislike about the company

Management can restrict employees getting better or other opportunities in other departments. Upper level execs/department heads seem to have no limit on what they spend, yet I worked here 4 years before getting a raise, and I still make less than what the fast food people call a "living wage." Administrative people are universally thought of as unimportant and interchangeable by those who can't work the copy machine without us.

Suggestions for improvement

  • No improvements at this time or any other changes for the better. There seems to be pretty good plans in place at this time.

What I like about the company

Attended the length of service ceremony were they recognized employees at each five year mark and there were several employees that have been here 30, 35, 40, 45 and 50 years. Was great to see people here for that long. A nice reception afterwards to mingle and speak to those employees as well.

What I dislike about the company

I do not have any constructive feedback of things I disapprove of at this time.

Suggestions for improvement

  • My department is an enjoyable place to work, with hardly any problems. Would appreciate it if the rules applied to everyone the same, though. There are few instances, but some people tend to 'get away' with more things. We also could do more if we it could have a bigger budget: hire more employees, have more supplies, etc. As a state-owned university, it is not easy to get the money needed.

What I like about the company

I am given independence on running my area. I work with good employees. Employers listen to your opinions. You can offer ideas to change, upgrade, increase production, etc. without worry of chastisement. Opportunity for overtime in some areas, if wanted. Some areas have the summer off.

What I dislike about the company

Some departments don't give you the requested time for an event, and are upset when you don't have all they want because of lack of order time, and/ or prep time. Would like the higher ups to have our back with these occurrences. Some employees are not held to the same stringent rules as others.
