Low to intermediate stress level
Database Administrator II (Former Employee) – Clemson, SC – July 6, 2018
Continuous conversation about internal politics, mismanagement, and time until retirement rule conversations. Clemson University overall is a decent place to work, but in my division, management goals, career advancement, and willingness to give advancement to long time employees is an issue. Unless your name is highly publicized or you are attached to a large scale project, your chances are slim of receiving any salary adjustment. You either have to quit and come back, or beg and plead for understanding. The other issue is that once you have been employed by the state for any amount of time, it's difficult to walk away from the benefits because you can see retirement looming. I took advantage of an offer to get out ahead of time and have not regretted it one bit.
flexible work hours, good benefits, no time sheets anymore
Continuous change brings with it tons of rules and enforcement, politics politics politics
