Suggestions for improvement

  • Giving cost of living increases every year, merit based raises, appropriate salary increases with status changes/promotions in a timely fashion.

What I like about the company

My supervisor has approved me to work remotely a few times a month. I have the ability to attend conferences for professional development.

What I dislike about the company

Not recieving cost of living increases each year due to ‘budget cuts’ or recieving appropriate increases with status changes ‘due to lack of funds in the budget’.

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.
