    Pros

    Since it's a large university there are a significant number of opportunities to teach in various areas if you can connect across departments.

    Cons

    The university has grown in vision faster than it has in infrastructure. This means that even though there are good people in administration, they are often stretched too thin to be effective.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest they invest more in their infrastructure so that their execution can match the institutional rhetoric.
