"Really a dead-end job because they tend to only promote people they know. You can work very hard for very little recognition. The new Director made a lot of changes but the AD's couldn't handle it, they would just delegate and didn't know how to plan or execute. This made it very difficult for the people actually doing the work."

"I've been volunteering with VCU for more than two years. The place keeps on growing and opening new opportunities annually. I found that the place, like any other, could improve its relations with its staff and workers. But it seeks out for improvement and is a good listener of any complaints or comments."

IT Analyst

"I had been with VCU for awhile first starting off as a part time desktop technician and then hired on as a full time manager of student technicians who oversaw and supported in computer technical fashion the whole student population at VCU. Once I graduated with my BS, they promoted me to the staff side of the division and I managed over 500 computers and 400 employees in a Windows Active Directory environment with settings and configurations set within MS Group Policy, all of which I had learned on my own. On top of managing users, computers and network devices such as copiers and printers, I also managed and maintained web applications on Windows Server 2008 running IIS 7 and also a file server again running Windows Server."

"I've worked here for some time and have realized my co-workers are great but the pay and work is not. Seriously getting under paid for a skilled area of employment. The work schedule is flexible and the supervisors are friendly and approachable. Some of the customers are not the best to get along with but that comes with any customer service position."

"As a student worker, I don't have too much say in the goings on of VCU libraries, my responsibilities are not many, and it is hardly a job relating to my field. However, I enjoy working there, and I learned many skills: time management, office work, etc, that I hope will come in handy in the future."
