    Pros

    - Dedicated, hard-working staff and faculty
    - Solid, community-based mission
    - Ample parking
    - For me, an opportunity to learn ground-floor basics I had missed moving forward too quickly in career

    Cons

    - Unwilling to make changes based on advice of paid, outside experts or staff, particularly those not well-known in the community and going back generations
    - Little to no opportunity for advancement; people tend to be viewed by their title and role only
    - Absence of communication leads to a lot of disharmony, in-fighting
    - Very remote area; many of those who grew up there love it, the few people I met from "the outside" had harder than usual time adjusting
    - The culture is very hierarchical and closed rather than flat and open.

    Advice to Management

    Management of individual departments is actually very excellent. There are some very hard-working, dedicated people who manage the various departments.

    Institutionally, however, and even regionally, there is an unwillingness to make changes that don't involve throwing money around.
