    Pros

    Connections, fast paced, you get to be involved in many projects, the opportunities are endless, and you get to work with national team coaches.

    Cons

    It could be more organized. It seems some people have much more work than others and not enough time or resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more organization and more communication between different departments. Seems like things tend to get lost often.

    Pros

    Access to libraries, proximity to decent eateries, very good benefits,

    Cons

    Managers / directors / assistant deans condone themselves with a high attitude of self-entitlement and treat their jobs as side kicks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that this is an institution for public service, not self-service. Instead of hiring management based on nepotism, hire them based on competence; this prevents the calamity you have in place, a CFO with a high school diploma making $100k / year vs. a Legal Assistant with a PhD making $42k / year. Submit managers to diversity training (from frontline to senior management, including minorities themselves, the worse offenders). Recognize productivity and efficiency and you won't have such high turnover.
