    Really smart colleagues among the staff, who understand the institution very well. And, excellent benefits and options for health insurance, child care savings, retirement savings..


    It's somewhat hierarchical, but it doesn't want to appear to be that way, so it can be tough to navigate, particularly if you have any interaction with faculty as part of your work.

    Advice to Management

    Every decision made is an opportunity to increase transparency, which would go a long way toward building trust, morale, and loyalty among both staff and faculty.
