    I worked at University of Wyoming

    Pros

    Really great benefits and chance to experience Division 1 athletics, world-class arts and wonderful people.

    Really depends on your manager. Need a better system to get rid of bad apples.

    Hold your leadership more accountable. Get rid of troublesome AVPs that are only concerned about themselves. Recognize and retain good talent.

    Pros

    Good people around. Job satisfaction depends on the department and faculty you work for.

    Not much. Keep the good work.

    I have been working at University of Wyoming

    Pros

    Extremely nice professors, advisors, and fellow students who are willing to help you learn, even outside of the classroom. They will work one on one in order to help you understand a concept.

    Cons

    Some educators do not expect enough of their students and will create poor teaching environments. Sometimes a class may be completed without truly learning anything helpful.
