    Pros

    I love it here! Everyone is friendly to work with and very capable in their jobs.

    Cons

    It is a growing law school, and with that there are a few growing pains but nothing too serious.

    Advice to Management

    There may be better ways of listening to what the needs of the staff are. The building does need some facial changes.
