    I have been working at Wayne State full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    This is a great place to work if you're interested in building a nice retirement portfolio, continuing your education, and enjoy lots of vacation time. It's easy to have a pretty decent work/life balance.

    Cons

    The environment is increasingly becoming more corporate. The only exception is compensation. All people within a bargaining unit get the exact same raises so there is no motivation to go above and beyond.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider changes to policy and allow for rewards for good work.
