    I have been working at Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Many of the grizzled veterans are being forced into early retirement, and the institution is bustling with challenges/opportunities for those with a vision and strong passion for higher education.

    Cons

    Deplorable working conditions, inadequate facilities, low student, staff and faculty morale, disconnected and delusional leadership on many levels. A general lack of professionalism throughout.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in improving working conditions and renovating outdated buildings. Continue to push out those not willing to change. Step into the 21st century, particularly in terms of technology!

    I found the job to be very easy to do and very enjoyable to working with younger students. Very flexible the first few months of you needed to miss work for school assignments

    I love the college students that I meet and see everyday. My colleagues are the BEST we are all really, really close. I love the family atmosphere that we have in our office.
