    Pros

    You get to work with some really great people. Great retirement benefits and pretty good work life balance if you have a good manager.

    Cons

    We're hesitant to do try new ways of doing things to streamline the beauracracy. Faculty can be difficult to work for. Administrative managers are more obsessed with petty rules than fostering the work and creativity of individuals. That's necessary for nurses and office support staff but not so great for professionals. New "open concept" office environment is not conducive to productivity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adapt to new technology and business practices faster. Encourage managers to use their discretion in dealing with work life balance issues.
