    I have been working at Wayne State part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great college culture, good people who are humble and very willing to help. The area around campus is really improving and thriving with an energy wonderful to be around.

    Cons

    On the lower end of the pay scale but decent benefits. Parking in and around campus is still an issue at times and much needed building upgrades are beginning to come to fruition a la the Student Center. Many more buildings and rest rooms still require renovations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with adjunct faculty to leverage their knowledge and include more in decision making as well as begin providing full tuition reimbursement for both full and part-time employees along with immediate family members.
