Executive communications (Former Employee) – Pullman, WA – August 4, 2017
Washington State University has been a great learning experience, but no longer offers long term stability seen in higher education.
Rapid leadership changes have caused disruption in planning and programs. The financial structure of the institution is strained. Many of the key programs developed under Dr. Elson S. Floyd are floundering for a lack of supporting leadership.
This indecisiveness has led to many top effective unit leaders leaving. As such, the result has left many of the jobs at WSU in flux.
The benefits and pay are top notch. There are educational opportunities that are available, but not promoted.
My recommendation would be to strongly consider a position at WSU. But not to believe it is a long-term career opportunity.
Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Ogden, UT – February 22, 2017
I learned a lot while working as a research assistant. I got to practice my python and I had the chance to pursue other opportunities that would not have been otherwise available if I had not worked here.

Front Desk Assistant (Former Employee) – Pullman, WA – November 20, 2014
This job was amazing. Being student and education centered, we were allowed to do our homework during down time. We were given a lot of responsibility with the reassurance of back up at anytime we needed. The job itself was organized and allowed us to help residents have a better experience.
Boeing Engineer mentor (Former Employee) – Everett, WA – August 18, 2014
As an engineering student at WSU, the program allowed me to meet a Boeing engineer who helped me as a mentor. My mentor took the time to answer any questions I had, and made suggestions on how I should prepare for the post education world. I had the opportunity to visit his office and get a glimpse at what his daily work looked like.
Teacher's Assistant (Former Employee) – Pullman, WA – May 16, 2013
I learned a lot here but doesn't compare to having many people from different backgrounds and experiences. I found myself going everyday without any excitement because everyday was the same. Friendly people but needed more stimulation.
