    Pros

    Integrity is an foundational value that was lived and not just posted on a motivational chart. I genuinely helped people at my job. The benefits were great. The team and corporate support were awesome!

    Cons

    The industry is in flux and therefore the university policies were constantly shifting. I did not feel that my campus position was secure because the market seemed saturated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would pace growth more conservatively. Additionally, you should consider more remote/work-from-home options for employees.
