Department of Business and Finance (Former Employee), Dover, DE – August 3, 2013
Pros: good benefits
Cons: everything else (literally)
At Delaware State University, I had a position that dealt with every facet of the University. I interacted with every department and every everybody (from the janitors to the president). After several years with the University, I have found out that an overwhelming consensus of 98% of the University staff, faculty, and vendors are frustrated with the – more... University. The only people that are not frustrated/disappointed are solely there for the benefits and to get their pension. If your goal is to do a good job, help better the University and it students, or progress either the institution or yourself, then DSU is NOT the place to work.
As is all business, the attitude, drive, inspiration and motivation start at the top and work their way down through the ranks. Upper management at DSU is solely looking out for themselves...entitled to be in the positions that they backstabbed, lied, and cheated to get. Sadly, the betterment of the University, its faculty & staff, and worst of all its students are not a priority.
This University is in a golden position to become a gem within the community, state, and amongst their HBCU peers. And it pains me to see what they truly are, who is taking them there, and the obvious path of self destruction that they being led/forced down.
I thought that I could provide the University with the much needed help that they so desperately require and deserve, but I was met with nothing but opposition and ego fueled power-trips (a far too common outcome for an institution of "higher learning").
It truly hurts me to say...PLEASE DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME APPLYING TO THIS SCHOOL. – less
