    I have been working at Creighton University

    Pros

    There are some excellent people here. Helpful to a fault, devoted to the Univrrsity's mission. Many are alums, the children of alums, and are parents to alums, and donate to Creighton, too.

    Cons

    Managerial variety, and not in the positive sense. Some managers do not understand the managerial task of working through others; rather they see themselves as working managers, but end up not working or managing well. This is preventable though.

    Silo mentality, replete with information hiding and chicanery (sic) with the org chart and budget. Nothing illegal, just no explanation for behavior. Sad.

    To much independence at the corner office level without consideration for fiscal, budgetary or organizational impact of unilateral decisions. Mistaken for "leadership" when what's needed is a CEO with her/his head in the game.

    Vacuum leads to meddling by some Board of Trustees members outside of their professional or personal competence. External evaluation, oversight, appointment and replacement of board members is needed.

    A joint meeting of the Board of Trustees and the Faculty Senate to review faculty grievances would do a lot to clear the air.

    Faculty, however, would do well to remember that students' familys, and alumni, pay a great deal for higher education. The issue is not so much intellectual freedom as use of money. There are ample internal controls, but no ability to say "No" to the grandiose projects of some Deans. Those resources could be better used elsewhere.

    In 2014 there was $38 million in accumulated, deferred maintenance, typical for a 136 year old campus. Many new, wonderful facilities have been built for students. Faculty and especially staff are relegated to available space without rhyme or reason. Space planning and use are secretive processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please read the above and respond with something other than a scripted Town Hall meeting. Listen with Jesus' ears and speak with Jesus' voice, an eminently Ignatian sentiment for all at a historically Catholic, Jesuit college.
