Data Center and Storage Administator (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – April 20, 2016
Working in Higher Education is a good experience to get ones foot into the door, this especially helps when you graduated from the same institution and are working for it as a full time employee. The positions are state employee based and the raises vary greatly per what the budget allows, as it receives its primary funding from the state.
The overall culture is good and it all depends on what department you get to work for. As each department get to freedom to help its employees. I've learned alot over the past few years and still growing with everyday knowledge. It does get sometimes a bit routine working as when there is downtime one has to find things to keep busy. But working and maintaining a data center is this environment is fairly easy and not to much demanding.
Coworkers are great to have lunch with and it makes the day go by faster.
Overall my satisfaction working for this higher ed institution has been a very pleasant and rewarding along the way throughout the years.
Very good atmosphere, and great campus location plenty of food choices, and near downtown.
parking on campus can be tricky, especially when special events are held, and also due to new construction
A great place to work if you are looking for advancing your leadership
Student Coordinator (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – June 29, 2015
At MSU Denver orientation, I learned my leadership style and was given many opportunities to lead my peers. This was something I did not expect to do at such a young age. I learned about how to handle conflicts, how to motivate others, and how to hold myself accountable. My boss, Amy Dinise-Halter was the best boss I ever had. She did so much for my leadership. She covered for my other boss who really sat on his hands all day. The most enjoyable part pf the job was the inclusive and fun environment we created. It allowed me to be who I was who I could be. The hardest part is going to be leaving this job. It was a fdantastic opportunity.
Program Assistant I (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – May 5, 2015
MSU Denver is a good place to begin a professional career after graduating college. The challenge for me came when I was ready to continue growing and progressing professionally and the opportunities within the University were limited.
Writer (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – July 30, 2012
I've had quite a bit of experience with several management in many companies and have to say that the management is very passive aggressive in how they belittle their employees especially the newer hires. Management was confused about where to place the position I applied for and had different supervisors in a month. No one cared to provide an orientation of the culture and system of the organization. The interview process was not planned very well.
Learned that the school cares about image more than quality of education which is really disappointing because I was intrigued by the classes they offer.
The most enjoyable part of the job were the student workers and the most of the employees. Although management somehow seemed to enjoy creating tension between employees, there were some that held their own very well was genuine.
you can set your own lunch time
inconsiderate management, tension between employees, management not trusting their employees, lack of direction
Mathematics Tutor (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – January 14, 2015
My job as a mathematics tutor at MSU Denver is best described as having a pop quiz every five minutes. People studying disciplines from all walks of life would stop by to discuss the mathematical concepts surrounding their studies and as a tutor it was my job to provide them with the best incite that I could. From environmental sciences and meteorology to chemistry and calc--based physics, I was challenged daily to learn quickly and solve problems effectively. I also learned to work independently as well as collaborate with others to obtain desired solutions.
Great department in a growing college system in central Denver
Adjunct Instructor for Industrial Design Dept. (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – October 14, 2013
Metro State continues to impress me with the faculty, improved campus, facilities, and dedication to providing an affordable high-quality education. The Industrial Design department at the Auraria campus continues to reflect the changes and improvements seen throughout the college, and i'm flattered to be a contributor to this team of professors. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and professional experience with the students in this positive and nurturing environment.
flexible schedule, great campus and work environment.
last minute canceling of courses and limited work hours.
Assistant to the AVP of Human Resources (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – September 9, 2013
Very busy department during the summer semester. I have learned a multitude of duties, from being an admin assistant to managing the FT Faculty and Administrators salaries and making sure that their pay is correct. The hardest part of the job is that I feel like I'm doing more than I should and is not appreciated. The most enjoyable part of my job is the employees I support on a day to day basis. I love interacting with people and love giving great customer service to everyone.
was working on shows and my internship with kaiser wasn't really a paid job
Assistant Stage Manager (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – January 16, 2014
well i went to school here so i spent a lot of time here. i learned a lot from many different classes and types of people i would meet, a true melting pot. my directors and teachers inspired and gave my chances to perform and express myself in ways. hardest part was realizing that real life had to begin and i couldn't perform all the time i was gonna have to find a grown up job.
First of all, Metro State College is a diploma mill. But, when I read about employees unfortunate experience working there, I now wonder what kind of institution they are. Students aren't getting their money's worth. It's a disgrace what goes on in the administration departments -- adults acting like little brats while students are paying high tuition and/or loan debt. Metro State just smells funny.
A great place to learn from other faculty while having fun teaching others in downtown Denver
Affiliate Faculty Member (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – September 3, 2014
My employment at MetroState has allowed me to stay up to date with important concepts related to Chemistry. It has also improved my teaching, managing, public speaking and problem solving skills. I am grateful to have the opportunity to teach at my alma mater.
