Oklahoma State University Residential Life
Residence Director (Current Employee), Stillwater, OklahomaFebruary 23, 2014
Oklahoma State University (OSU) Residential Life is a wonderful opportunity for professional development and tuition assistance. The positions are generally low stress but very time consuming. Expect long meetings and the occasional response to a crisis situation. However, you will not find a better work culture anywhere else.

Diverse, low stress environment, printing items for staff and faculty.
Printing Coordinator (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OKFebruary 23, 2014
Pros: great benefits, low stress, friendly coworkers
Cons: limited compensation, limited advancement opportunities
My job at OSU-OKC was much like my previous jobs working for a printing press and, earlier in my career, a math textbook publisher. My typical day was spent coordinating printed materials for school faculty and staff, and occasionally supervising others in doing so.

Management was very effective and approachable, and co-workers were friendly, hard-working, – more... and team-oriented. Frequently a teacher or upper management would contact me or my manager with a large amount of print work to be completed in a very limited time frame, but we welcomed these challenges and were able to fulfill all print orders efficiently and on-time. During the last 2 years of my employment we were allowed to do printing for the public and other businesses, to great effect and reasonable profit.

The hardest part of the job was accepting a near-minimum wage compensation with little opportunity for advancement, profit-sharing, or bonuses.

The most enjoyable part of the job was the opportunity to attend classes part-time and have tuition and fees reimbursed. I took advantage of this in order to develop new skills for a new profession, with which I was able to leverage myself away from the print trade toward new opportunity. – less

Productive workplace
Research Associate (Current Employee), Stillwater, OKJanuary 18, 2014
Pros: the research facilites and instruments available
Cons: it was a poorly managed institution, without checks and balances that promoted a good working culture, a lot of office politics and fear driven government was the biggest drawback
I learned how to conduct productive graduate level research. The chemistry that I did was focused on industrial applications and remediation for industry. The philosophical focus of my work was on nanotechnology in novel method and reagent development towards industrial applications. The premise that guided me personally was a low production cost and – more... high profit margin drive. In this setting I learned a wide scope of chemical instrumentation and chemical computational software. I learned how to interact with different peoples of the world, at the same time working in a team with diverse populations. The most enjoyable part of my job was doing research that developed new technologies and also teaching students of different backgrounds about chemical technologies. – less

Nice place to work.
Staff Technologist-Computed Tomography Department (Former Employee), Tulsa, OKJanuary 16, 2014
Pros: employees are very nice to work with.
Cons: lack of available help when needed.
OSUMC has really inproved and updated the facility since I began working there. New equipment and updates...it is really coming along. The majority of the people who work at this facility are wonderful, caring and friendly among each other. I never really felt a closeness within my own department but I did enjoy working with other departments. I worked – more... pretty much alone on my shift and had asked for assistance several times but was told everyone was busy and I'd pretty much just have to make do. All in all I really liked working at this facility. – less
