    Pros

    Great location, great people to work with. Students are bright and motivated. Most departments are very easy to work with in terms of scheduling, etc.

    Cons

    Administration is unorganized and does not cooperate between departments well. Good intentions from the top, but mid-level management is unorganized and often made up of people who don't seem to care.
