Great mission and good place to work. Compensation lags.
Director, Systemwide Risk Management (Current Employee) – Long Beach, CA – August 8, 2016
CSU has a worthy mission and plays a very important role in providing accessibility to higher education opportunities to the State of California's residents. For every $1 the CSU receives in government assistance, the CSU returns ~$5.43 to the state.
With out the CSU, many young adults would not be able to afford to go to college and this held the same for me when I attended CSULB many years ago. In other words, when working for the CSU, one feels as if they are contributing to a very worthy mission.
However, for my position, when comparing salary and benefits for like kind and quality director positions, the CSU lags to the tune of ~30%-50% less. Opportunity for salary growth is very limited.
We do more with less and still make less.
Great work environment.
