    Pros

    Flexible hours. That's about all I can think of. No benefits for long term workers. Super high turnover since staffed with college part timers. Every phone call into CED is like a crap shoot. You never know who will pick up the line.

    Cons

    Take this real-life example: Me to manager: Hi. Havn't heard from you in years. (no I'm not kidding) CED Manager: OMG! Wow. Havn't thought about you in a long time. Do you still work for me? Me: Yes, of course. Don't you see the money I've brought in for the past x years on your budget line? (roll eyes here) CED Manager: Well. Yes. I think. So how have you been? When is the last time we've got together? I'll let you guess the rest of the conversation. It didn't get any better. This is just one example of their business experience.

    Advice to Management

    Wise up in the director level. You've lost to many contracts due to leadership mistakes. In past 5 years, a talent hole has developed. You cannot claim to be the Center for Enterprise Development, when you don't even know your people. Please, develop yourselves.

    Pros

    Independence, maybe too much independence.

    Cons

    Lack of feedback, encouragement and motivation from the higher ops. Some newly hired professors make a ton of money, more than some full professors. No wonder why the rankings are so low.

    Advice to Management

    Reach out to your employees and take the time to answer when you receive an email asking for a chat. Put some effort in improving teaching quality. Some classes are so outdated and out of focus. Connect with the myriad of local employers.

    Pros

    Diversity, Meet new and different people. Office Parties and International week are always great. The other work-study students make it a fun experience.

    Cons

    To much expected for little pay, not all staff is nice and friendly. You get talked down and shown little respect

    Advice to Management

    Be nicer to work-study students without them you would be lost. Higher wages would be great because the little pay you offer is an insult.
