    Work-life balance is OK, in general advisors are good, encouraging, and most people are pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    No benefits, wages are relatively low, more leadership is needed, slow-paced environment, bureaucracy is overwhelming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The University needs to be more dynamic, more leaders are needed to move this big University. The University produces good professionals that could be retained to build a stronger institution in terms or administration and academically.
