    The adjuncts are taking advantage of a generous organization

    (Current Employee)

    ProsAHSS FT Faculty and staff a joy.

    ConsCurrent adjunct debates are drowning sane voices.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe loud few are trampling the rest of us. Adjuncts should apply for permanent positions if they are qualified. I do not think those with weaker credentials should take from the FT faculty compensation pool. Faculty Forum needs to welcome moderate voices; currently, it does NOT. I am very disturbed by the odd compensation structure levied on faculty this year.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Collegial environment, bringing organization in line with the modern world

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsColleagues in academic world are genuinely committed to students and strengthening of the University. Relatively strong new president with a challenging board of trustees. Some great staff members who tirelessly support the mission.

    ConsHR function worse than bad and totally bloated while the rest of the organization is tightening its belt. I don't know of anyone who feels they can trust HR or its "leaders", rely on HR to do its job or rely on expertise of HR. Hiring is a nightmare. Many strong candidates lost because of lack of professionalism and support in HR. Weak technology department. Dorms in disrepair which causes students to move off campus. Weak admissions department.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on students.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
