Software Engineer and Database Administrator (Current Employee), Denver, CO – November 4, 2013

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 – more... the employees I support on a day to day basis. I love interacting with people and love giving great customer service to everyone. – less
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 – more... and/or loan debt. Metro State just smells funny. – less
accounting services (Former Employee), Metro – May 17, 2013
Cons: management, coworkers, polices that make no sense
This was the worst place I've ever worked. I took a pay cut to come here but thought it would be woth it. I quickly discovered It was a struggle to go to work every day. Management would not stand behind university procedures. Whoever yelled the loudest or went the highest up the chain got whatever they wanted. Was constantly bullied by professors and – more... other admin. – less
Writer (Former Employee), Denver, CO – July 30, 2012
Pros: you can set your own lunch time
Cons: inconsiderate management, tension between employees, management not trusting their employees, lack of direction
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 – more... 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. – less
