    Pros

    The pay is great, the community is healthy, and the University truly cares about it's employees. President Salovey will make it an even better university.

    Very bureaucratic, every manager has to ask their manager before anything can get done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give divisions more autonomy. Let those in charge, be in charge, and give them the resources they need to be successful.
