    Pros

    It was great to work with students and have a positive impact in their lives. The beautiful campus was well maintained and provided a lovely backdrop.

    Cons

    There were numerous leadership issues - still are. Silos exist everywhere. To be successful, one has to learn to work among the many closed groups.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to those who have dedicated their lives to the organization and balance that with bringing in those with no higher education experience at upper management levels if you want to keep a dedicated and supportive staff.
