Awesome place to work.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  DelawareSeptember 8, 2018
DSU is an awesome place to work. The only problem is part-time employees should have the options of working between 20-29 hours per week. Otherwise, DSU is sincerely a wonderful place to be employed.
Pros
Management learning skills
Cons
limited working hours

Not the best place to work
Testing Specialist (Former Employee) –  Dover, DESeptember 4, 2018
Management talks about staff with no regards for being decent at times. No regard for personal life and very stringent. Very boring place to work. If you want to just sit around and have bad talked about you with no benefits this is the place for you. No benefits for part time workers but you are expected to work full time hours and work outside of your schedule with no questions asked.
Pros
working on a campus
Cons
poor management, no benefits for part time employees however you are still expected to work over 40 hours a week.

Excellent Benefits, Poor Work Environment
Non-Exempt Employee (Current Employee) –  Dover, DE 19901August 8, 2018
The organization does not value its employees or students. Many offices work in silos and lack collaboration. Faculty, secretarial staff, and custodial staff are unionized. Professional employees are At-Will and are frequently abused by their managers due to this status. The office of human resources does little to remedy areas that have low retention rates for staff and needs to conduct leadership training for its leadership. Students do not have adequate housing and their concerns are unheard by administration. Many of the courses students need are often unavailable during registration periods.
Pros
Educational Benefits for FT Employees, Beautiful Campus
Cons
Unprofessional Work Culture, Top Heavy Institution, Antiquated Work Practices

Voice Instructor (Former Employee) –  Dover, DEAugust 7, 2018
My department was underfunded, making it very difficult to obtain the proper resources to properly teach. The lack of funding also makes career advancement/tenure track very difficult.

Productive and Daring
Testing Assistant (Former Employee) –  Dover, DEMay 21, 2018
The University through technology especially Office 365 has created an environment where meetings happen on the go; in-person and virtually. Collaboration and sharing of files and documents are easier and these make employees more productive.
Cons
Not all employees are comfortable with the tools made available to them.

working there
Assist Student Affairs (Former Employee) –  Dover, DEMay 14, 2018
Being there with others my age was great, but I was not a fan of the time it took for them to pay us a 100 dollar stipend. Other than that it was fun meeting the incoming freshmen and informing their families on their children life at DSU for the next 4 years.

Nice job for a student
Technical Assistant/Director/Instant Replay (Former Employee) –  Dover, DEMay 13, 2018
Although I learned a lot working here, the professors did not have a lot of knowledge in the areas that they were teaching. Many of them do not know how to edit videos, which is not good especially if you teach a class where editing is required. I learned a lot of how to edit on my own than any professor has ever shown me.

Productive and at times stressful environment
Head Women's Basketball Coach (Former Employee) –  Dover, DEMarch 1, 2018
Typical work day was watching film, planning for practices or games along with handling administrative duties. I managed all aspects of the program including, staff, players, academics as well as the budget.
What I learned most was how this generation has changed and how to relate to them to help them be more successful.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with a limited budget and changing the culture to having a winning spirit.
The most enjoyable part of the job was going everyday and watching the team grow and mature as student-athletes.
Pros
The enviroment and a sense of family.
Cons
To much turnover in administration.
