It is a good place to work if you have children.

Advice to Management

They should promote based on skills and qualifications, not who a person knows.

    Pros

    The students are terrific. Costume studio is basement level (as many are!) but it is very well lite, and feels open and spacious. The most of the equipment is about 5 years old, so it's broken in but not broken down. They only produce four shows a year plus a 2-night series of one-acts. Build schedules average 5 weeks on the calendar (reality is different - see "cons"). One or more part-time work study assistants available upon request. Most faculty are very pleasant and professional. For me, it's a very easy job overall.

    Cons

    The University is in very serious trouble financially. Money for purchasing and supplies is unbelievably difficult to acquire and ridiculously slow. Real build time is often reduced to three weeks due to delays in funding and subsequent supply acquisition - causing needless stress. It is a very "who you know" institution at nearly every level. Senior faculty members seem to delight in being difficult and often speak in very unprofessional manners. There is a very dysfunctional communication and interpersonal pattern between senior faculty and department management. This unhealthy, chaotic pattern filters out to peers and down to students thereby creating an unnecessarily stressful atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and realistic. Address the problems frankly. Have open and courageous dialogue then take action appropriately. Improve communication and organisation/scheduling.
