Database Administrator II (Former Employee) –  Clemson, SCJuly 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.
Pros
flexible work hours, good benefits, no time sheets anymore
Cons
Continuous change brings with it tons of rules and enforcement, politics politics politics

Peer Dialogue Facilitator (Former Employee) –  Clemson, SCJune 9, 2018
While I cannot speak for the other departments at the University, the Harvey-Lucinda Gantt Multicultural Center offers students from targeted groups a space that helps them acclimate to the college lifestyle. Every person there is deeply dedicated to making sure that Clemson maintains a high standard of ethical integrity, especially in regards to the ways they interact with others during their time at Clemson and beyond.
Pros
Mutually educational environment, networking opportunities, altruistic work

Limited hours, low pay, push-back from wary students

Increasingly busy
IT Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Clemson, SCMay 2, 2018
Management can't keep up with the amount of calls and students being given to CCIT's helpdesk. They supplement this by making full-time staff answer calls now. The student workers are generally relaxed and friendly, but the managers can be off-putting at best, or attempt to hit on you if you're an attractive young woman.

Pay is alright for a college job, starting at 8 per hour and going up to 10-11 if you work hard and don't get bad reviews.

Male managers either are too busy dealing with other issues, or too buys browsing Amazon to assist HD employees, while the woman helps as much as she can.
Pros
A lot of downtime - sometimes
Cons
Male managers don't care, or just pretend to.
