    I have been working at Western Kentucky University (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people to work with. TONS of free/vacation time. Pretty relaxed and easy-going environment for the most part.

    Cons

    No room to move upwards. Easy to become complacent and comfortable. Change comes extremely slowly and the financial instability of the university as a whole has you constantly worrying whether or not your job will be around next fiscal cycle.

    Advice to Management

    Make an actual attempt to stay abreast on new ideas and don't be afraid to invest in the organization. Get rid of the "good ole boy" or "buddy buddy" mentality. It is entirely too incestuous when it comes to hiring and keeping people.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Western Kentucky University (Bowling Green, KY).

    Interview

    The hiring process is a long process. Once the application is completed candidates can be selected often times months after applying. The interview process is simple for non upper level management positions.

    Negotiation

    Salary was nonnegotiable
