    Great place to work, but...

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros- committed to values
    - listens to the ideas from employees at all levels
    - benefits were great!

    Cons- LOTS of politics
    - people are promoted because they are liked, rather than that they are good for the position
    - currently, the univ. is more focused on structures than people

    Advice to Senior Managementwork to bring in fresh talent and new ideas as opposed to sticking to internal candidates. Be willing to embrace change instead of resisting it.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Educational benefits & friendly environmnet, bogged down by beaurocratic blah blah

    Systems Engineer (Former Employee) Dayton, OH

    ProsBenefits package is good, tuition remission is great especially for family members..
    The university community is very inclusive and friendly of every equal-opportunity factor (age, race, gender, etc).

    ConsPay is lower than average for the industry (IT), even with tuition remission benefits figured in to the 'total package'. Great for younger employees and first-time employees, or for parents putting their kids thru college, but not for the in-betweens or post-kid adults.
    Beaurocracy of the place is overwhelming sometimes. P.C. rules the day to the extreme and can hamper creativity.
    Promotions above mid levels can be slow/non-existant (unless they're "laid off").

    Advice to Senior ManagementRespect your employees, don't do underhanded things. Be open with information and keep people informed as plans develop. Find a way to get anonymous feedback if you really want honest feedback. Remember people want to work in that environment because it -isn't- a big corporation and -doesn't- come with that high stress level and paperwork/red tape.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
