Always on probation and declining student enrollment
Professor (Former Employee), Norfolk, VAAugust 17, 2015
Pros: Trying to help students learn
Cons: provost, admins, politics and people in power who are out of date
this University is more about protecting the Admins in power than anything else. The equipment and software is not up to current industry standards and the students are being cheated. I would not recommend to anyone to work here because if you try to make a difference, you are shut down by those trying to hold into their illusion of competency. The facts speak for themselves, disgraced Presidents, in fear of losing accreditation, and students who are not being provided the best opportunity to learn.

Receptionist (Current Employee), Norfolk, VAJuly 10, 2015
I love working here as a receptionist. I am a full-time student during the school year and it is a work studies job so I only work there during the school year (we are currently on summer break). It gives me the experience that I need with front desk assistance, reception, filing documents, etc. They are very good people and they are very flexible with my school schedule.

day at NSU
Assistant Men's Coach (Former Employee), Norfolk, VAJuly 9, 2015
Pros: being around the student athletes
Cons: environment and culture
A typical day includes getting travel ready for the season. Also working out players and practice. I learned working at norfolk state what not to do in running a collegiate program. The management of the athletic department was not the best. Members of the staff lost there jobs due to money issues. Meaning that the athletic department wasn't doing any major fundraising. The hardest part of the job was doing multiple full time jobs within a job. The most enjoyable thing i liked about the job was being around a sport which i love and the competition.

Nice atmosphere
Office Assistant (Former Employee), Norfolk, VAMay 17, 2015
Nothing about this job was typical. With this job I can be doing one project today and something totally different tomorrow. That was fine with me. I did whatever my supervisor ask of me. Majority of the time I wrote the minutes she recorded earlier that day, file a lot of different paper work and folders, make copies, create labels, fax, etc. I learned how to use a typewriter... a couple of times. My supervisor was extremely nice and flexible. She didn't mind me asking questions and I had lots of them. Nothing was hard about the job. Since I was so far away from home I enjoyed seeing my supervisor everyday because she was so nurturing like my own mother.

Going down the hill
Assistant Professor of Mathematics (Former Employee), Math DeptMay 1, 2015
This school has probably more administrators than teaching faculties. The enrollment has gone down about 20% for the last two years due to management mistakes. But the faculties were cut more than 20% and administrators virtually all stay with their fat salaries. The way it is going, in the near future, if there is any future for this school, there will be one administrator for every 5 students! (And may be one teaching faculty for every 25 students.)

Toughest job I ever loved and I learned so much in the process.
Adjunct Faculty (Current Employee), Norfolk, VAJanuary 29, 2015
Pros: diverse employees, great special events, great learning environment
Working for an academic institution is a tough job. You get to work with diverse groups of people including faculty, staff and students, which gives all employees the best working environment. A typical day involved work on multiple projects including website redesign, the President's Annual Report, the university magazine, special events and ever-present crisis events. I learned how to work with different generations of people and I will be eternally grateful for that experience.
