    Pros

    A fantastic community atmosphere.
    A great number of colleagues who are very competent at their jobs.
    An environment that challenges you to work hard and be creative.
    A supervisory structure that accommodates personal lives--births, deaths, etc.
    The amenities of working on a college campus make this an endearing place to work.

    Cons

    Decision making processes can be slow.
    Hiring processes can be very slow.
    Job mobility is sometimes an issue--few opportunities to advance within a department.

    Advice to Management

    Communication around campus can be difficult sometimes--hard to know what people in other silos are doing. Davidson has reached a size where it's just a bit bigger than its small-community feel, and effective communication has suffered over the past five years. Fixing that (beyond Glassdoor.com reviews) is challenging, but will greatly benefit the community at large.
