      Unequal Pay Scale

      Pros

      Boise, the city, is a beautiful place to live.

      Cons

      Boise State does not enact meritorious incentives for their employees and utilizes a system that makes it impossible to score on the upper end when performance evaluations come around. They notoriously circumvent any attempt to increase wages and have an unequal pay gap between male and female employees of the same level and experience.

      Pros

      Flexible, understanding, and supportive of educational pursuits.

      Cons

      BSU is a large organization, which can sometimes cause a delay in the sharing of information that may be useful for employees/students. This is understandable and it's clear that efforts are made to share information as promptly as possible.
