Great Culture. Poor Pay. Riddled in Red Tape
Financial Support Specialist (Current Employee) – Fayetteville, AR – January 6, 2016
The University of Arkansas is a great work environment. The problem however is that all of the staff unless your in the upper echelons of the system get paid at least 15k less a year than they deserve. If it weren't for the 90% tuition discount I wouldn't stay on, and sadly not because I don't like what I do, or the people and culture that I am with, but because my job hardly equates to a living wage as a single parent trying to afford the bare minimum of bills. Car payment, insurance, phone, rent, utilities, daycare.. nothing extravagant and I'm still in the red after each paycheck. This is a combination of being a state funded agency, and a lack of fight for the majority of the staff on the Universities part. The quality will continue to dwindle if the good people that keep the place running can't afford to keep their lights on.
90% Tuition discount for full time employees, 50% for their dependents & spouses, great benefits, and work life balance.
unorganized, excessevie red tape in every sector, hardly living wages
