Undergrad Internship (Current Employee), Fort Collins, CO – May 19, 2013
I worked here for my senior year while going to school. It was an internship position whith flexible hours for a student. Did not have many benifits but this was expected as this is not really a true "real life job" but more of a work study position
Great place to work with flexibility necessary to complete college
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Fort Collins, CO – April 11, 2013
Pros: workable schedule, great coworkers, friendly environment
Cons: none really
A typical day at work involves assisting the CSU College of Business faculty with anything they need done. This could be anything from event planning, meeting possible investors, basic maintenance, and receptionist duties. I learned how to work in a professional environment with very important people. The management was great and were very supportive – more... and understanding of the fact that I am a full time college student. My co-workers were the best part of my job, some of them became my best friends. The hardest part of my job was the grunge work we had to do. This includes picking up trash around the buildings, shoveling snow, painting, and keeping the buildings spotless. – less

Director of Auxiliary Services (Former Employee), Pueblo, CO – March 28, 2013
Pros: overall good place to work.
Cons: lack of consistent leadership due to vacancies in key leadership roles.
Overall administration of eight departments with budgets in excess of $8M in sales annually. Superivsed 12 full time and 45 part time employees. Facility management of up one million square feet, event management, managed food service contract and child care center contract with over 65 empolyees total, managed three service contracts for products for – more... entire campus. Work with both academic and non academic departments to provide services. I learned people can be your best asset and having the right people in the right place is critical to great customer service and customer service is vital to running successful businesses. Hardest part was keep up with each area on a daily basis and most recently the lack of consistent leadership due to the number of vacancies. Communincation was difficult and lacking in many ways which hampered our ability to do business properly. The most enjoyable part of the job was the many people who I was able to work with and become friends with and develop many successes in our operations. – less
Custodial I (Current Employee), Fort Collins, CO – March 12, 2013
When i first started working for CSU I thought it was a great place to work until it started to show its true colors. Peons get blamed for everything, there is no such thing as moving up because everyone who is already moved up won't quit till they die off. Once you become a Custodial II you get the responsablility of sitting on your butt doing nothing – more... for 8hrs a day. and if your a Custodial III or 4 you dont even have to come to work to keep getting a pay check. Some people are very nice but not many. Also your co-workers are gunna try to stab you in the back everytime you turn around so watch out. This would be a great position for someone who doesn't care what others say about them, or someone who is extreamly desprit for work.I can't go one day without looking over my sholder or walking around on egg shells. I also have a mid disability and there is NO help for people with disabilities. I sat down and had a heart to heart with my supervisors to tell them about it and they threw it back in my face and said I was making up excuses. – less
Colorado State University - Best Employer in Fort Collins
Enrollment Services Representative (Current Employee), Fort Collins, CO – November 12, 2012
Pros: security in positions
Cons: low pay and little room for advancement.
If living in Fort Collins, CO is your dream, then securing employment at CSU is ideal. There is a good work/life balance here because everyone that lives here likes to make the most of the surroundings and outdoor activities. That being said, competition to obtain higher level positions within CSU is difficult; because everyone who is already working – more... here doesn't leave and everyone trying to move up internally AND those trying get a CSU job externally are vying for a limited number of positions. – less
Tutor (Current Employee), Pueblo Colorado – August 21, 2012
Pros: spending time with others while they are learning
I love the environment as I am encouraged daily to be the individual that I am and to assist others in finding their path. I also love helping others find that kernel of knowledge that they need to make things click. Everyone works as a team and is willing to help everyone else out.
Strong Supervisory support and very healthy diverse supportive culture
Community Energy Coordinator (Former Employee), Cañon City, CO – August 15, 2012
Pros: excellent health care and 24 days a year paid vacation starting out
Cons: uncertain permanent employment
CSU was intent on providing the very best to its students, the community and its employers. I truly appreciated the opportunity to work with such a great team. Unfortunately, I was hired through a grant program and, with a weakened economy, long term employment was uncertain. They provided flexible work hours, and great benefits. The hardest part of – more... my particular job was working with governmental officials who did not always get along but the most enjoyable part of the job was the opportunities to learn so many things in a very diverse environment – less
