Its a good university, not the top, but good
Postdoctoral Research Associate (Current Employee), Manhattan, KSJune 5, 2015
Pros: You can learn a lot
Cons: Low salaries for postdocs
I learnt a lot of things. Co-workers were great, but compensation was really bad. I think if it is a great place for undergraduate education. Even graduate school is decent. But due to lack of funds, postdoctoral research sucks. Most of the projects are not funded. Not recommended for pursuing postdoctoral research.

Great place!
Graduate Research Assistant, (Former Employee), Department of EntomologyJune 2, 2015
My experience and memories about working in the university are superb. The atmosphere is great mainly due to a great number of international people. The university cares equally about the quality of life of workers and students. The benefits offered were also good. This is a great place to work.

A good place to study and people here are lovely
Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee), Manhattan, KSApril 29, 2015
My job here is as a graduate research assistant. I worked on monitoring and managing surface water quality in impaired Kansas watersheds, with emphasis on cyanobacteria blooms and the corresponding management strategies.I have learned the key concepts, principles and practices in environmental engineering, and become acquainted with issues like erosion and sediment control, and storm water and waste water management design.
I like Kansas State University, it has the most lovely people and the happiest students. I enjoy my study and work here and also working with the people here.

Good university, bad state
Instructor (GTA) (Current Employee), Manhattan, KSApril 8, 2015
I had the opportunity to study and work at K-State, all good experiences except for the fact that research assistants do not have tuition waiver and salaries were not enough to cover then. My area of knowledge also does not have as much funding available, so job security was a problem. In addition, recently the economic crises in the state resulted in cut of funding for education...

I worked for Ratio Christi, not K-State
Ratio Christi Chapter Director (Former Employee), K-StateNovember 10, 2014
Pros: great atmosphere on campus with the students, loved being in charge of the events and chapter meetings.
Cons: poor leadership from the outside and pay was horrible.
The company possessed very poor management abilities and it was beyond being able to deal with effectively, so I left the company. It was also a support raised position so I didn't make barely any money at all.
