Good local management, convoluted upper management.
HELPDESK ANALYST (Current Employee), Stillwater, OK – April 10, 2014
A relaxed work environment. Work load is very manageable, and pace is fair.
The direct coworkers in the department are efficient and easy to work with, though if a help ticket needs to be transferred laterally to a different department or escalated to upper management, it was found that the efficiency of the work dropped.
The most enjoyable part of – more... the job is the expression customer's give once a solution is found, because by the time they contact the Helpdesk they are generally frustrated at their situation. – less

instructor (Current Employee), Stillwater – June 3, 2012
Pros: love some of the other instructors. great looking campus. good food.
Cons: attitudes of students and parents.
As an instructor, kids try to "get the grade" without doing the work and truthfully, they expect it. Parents are not behind the instructors some of the time, either. I expect the student to do the required work, show up for classes and on time and without an attitude. You do this here, you will do this on the job; well, if you show up at all. Past behavior – more... anywhere is a predictor or future behavior. Disrespect to your "bosses" in school will be the same for your bosses while in the workplace. – less
It is a challenging and interesting environment with abundant facilitied both for knowledge advancement and intertainment.
