    I worked at Ferris State University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours allowed me to create my own schedule in order to allow time for my classes and study schedule. The staff were very nice to me and were always polite. They would help me out if I had trouble with a student and would work with me if I was sick or had a last minute emergency.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the pay wasn't great, but that is expected because it was just a tutoring job. Other than that I cannot complain. It was the perfect job to have during college.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to management. Keep doing what your doing. They have the right goals in mind which are quality oriented. If they keep on pursuing those then I am confident they will do great in the future.

    Pros

    Ferris State University offers a great environment to work with students and to help allow them better themselves. The university is willing to work around schedules.

    Cons

    People are very rude. They talk crap about everyone so the work experience is not the greatest. After working for so long hours gets reduced dramatically.

    Advice to Management

    Keep everything consistent. Treat everyone equally and allow people to have a good time at work. Everything is so sad and gloomy.
