    I have been working at Elon University

    Pros

    Great sense of community and great perks when it comes to employee appreciation. Students are really pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    Very antiquated management styles and lack of support for employee development. Promotions seem biased and unfair.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Elevate your recognition of talent. You can find both loyalty and talent in many employees.

    I have been working at Elon University

    Pros

    Great benefits, friendly environment, beautiful campus

    Cons

    There is an "in crowd" for promotion, level of degree and from where matters

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even in poor economic times there are little things that could boost morale and promote professional development - like alternative schedules, working from home, 4 day work week, 20% time to develop new skills and ideas
