Great co-workers
Staff Assistant II (Current Employee), Logan, UTJuly 18, 2014
Pros: half tuition, great benefits, good people
Cons: hard to move up
I love my job to the extent that I love the people that I work with. I have a wonderful boss, who challenges me to be better and to pursue good things.

I think the job itself is very mundane, but that could be that I started this job before I finished my bachelors, and am now in my masters.

This is a good job for going to school, but it is not a career – more... job, for someone with a lot of education.

Utah State is a wonderful place to work, because of the amazing benefits. They also have great incentives and health programs.

The hardest part of my job is that I have mastered it, and I can't go up anymore. It is not a challenge, it becomes rote and mundane. – less

It was challenging being a TA but it was also fun. I learned a lot from the students and the professor as well. I always had to read a lot to answer all the questions the students had

Going to work was just another day with friends. People really got along well and everyone enjoyed working together.

One on one interaction with students
Organic Chemistry Undergraduate Teaching Fellow (Current Employee), Logan, UTApril 21, 2014
Pros: work with professor and letter of recommendation
Cons: few work hours
I hold office hours twice a week to answer any questions that students would come in with. Every exam I hold a special two hour session with my partner to help students develop study goals and explain difficult concepts that they will be tested on. After the exam has been administered I work with the professor on campus to grade and alphabetize then – more... input scores into the computer. – less

Security specialist (Current Employee), Logan, UTFebruary 16, 2014
Pros: insurance, job security, time off
Cons: managment uneducated, pay is low, limited to growth possibilities.
Excellent place to work to get into the trades. Management uses the "good ole boy" system which leaves education or experience null and void in the place of growing in the ranks. The hardest part of the job is working under a foreman that does not have training in the field you are working. Often times if you run into problems you can't go to the experience – more... boss for assistance because he often will not have that experience. The best part of the job is the leniency for time off if you have something you need to do it merely make the foreman aware you won't be in and as long as you got time you'll be fine. – less

Tutor for Student Athlete Services (Former Employee), Logan, UTOctober 21, 2013
Tutoring student athletes was a fun job to do. typically i would meet with a student for an hour and help them understand whatever they are having trouble with. Also help them prep for exams and such. The hardest part of the job was getting student who don't care about their classes to care and do well.

Adjunct Professor of Art (Former Employee), Logan, UTOctober 10, 2013
Pros: valuable life information transmittal through effective presentations.
Cons: the restriction of classroom time to explore information to its fullest extent
Adjunct Professor for approximately 15 years. Very successful relationship with students and University.
excellent feedback from students and university administration. Excellent compensation! Daily scheduled instruction to restricted enrollment of at risk students. Learned to perform satisfactorily with at risk students. Successful Time/Instruction – more... Management, sole responsibility without co-workers. The hardest part of job was finding enough time to satisfy my own desire for extended reseach. The most enjoyable part of the experience was knowing that information I presented was a valuable knowledge addition for the students – less

Nice atmosphere. Great people. Great benefits
Senior Graphic Designer (Current Employee), Logan, UTMay 21, 2013
Pros: great benefits package. great people. nice work/life balance.
Cons: you aren't paid what you're worth because money is tight in higher ed.
USU is a nice place to work. You are surrounded by amazing intellectuals who are passionate about their field of study. It's a nice place to kick-start a career.

The hardest part of the job is the politics involved–working for a university. There are a lot of hoops to jump through and at times it feels like wasted time and effort.

The most enjoyable – more... part of the job are the great people you work with, the ample paid time off, the great benefits, the work/life balance, and the rich university traditions. – less

Great work environment with no benefits
Instructor (Current Employee), Logan, UTApril 14, 2013
The institution tries to pay you as little as possible and avoids to give benefits to employees at all possible, even if that means cutting your hours. The location is beautiful and most co-workers are good people, but top management does not have a good connection with lower management.

Stable place to work
employee (Current Employee), Logan, UTApril 3, 2013
Pros: insurance, time off, relaxed environment, beautiful area
Cons: low pay, limited upward growth potential. somewhat bureaucratic
I really enjoy the atmosphere and the people. It is a fairly laid back place to work. They do well at training their employees and taking care of the employees work needs. The schedule is usually pretty flexible and the benefits are nice.
