    I have been working at University of Central Arkansas part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Wonderful school with lots of potential, small school + small town = great work life balance. If you are looking for opportunities to teach, broaden the minds of students, or help serve students in some capacity, this is the place to be.

    Cons

    The only negative thing I have to say about working at UCA is the lack of communication. I hope that in the near future things get better in this arena, but the lack of communication between departments and employees can be avoided if you are proactive, if not, then it probably still won't diminish your experience too much. It's just a cultural norm to be silo'd, but if that doesn't bother you, then this school is awesome! :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage communication! The students and entry level employees do not know or care who you are because you don't talk to them like you're on the same team.
