Otterbein has changed it used to be a company who cared for it's staff but, staff are a dime a dozen. It's top heavy but wonders why it's in debt, First time it's ever owed money and it's building a new department. Which caused no raises for the second year. They have to spend our monies to make money. We hire new people but they don't last long. We have a slow hire plan so people mostly hourly staff are stuck with doing more the same pay. No overtime, comp time but needs to be used the same week. Fire at will, 3 people have disappeared and never heard from again. Bought out for sure. We're a small university. We do not air our problems in front of our students. Except for my close campus friends every hourly staff is in the same boat.
freedom, no one contantly watching me. Work at my own pace
pay, only 37.5 hours a week, hourly, nill chances of advancement w/o degree, poor moral, no raise for second year in a row
