An ivory tower of higher ed professionals who would benefit from walking the streets a bit more

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsACE is well-respected in the higher ed field; terrific work-life balance; very good benefits package; smart, talented staff; great location

Conshigher ed policy and advocacy work take top billing always while other projects can suffer from lack of leadership attention; nontransparent decisionmaking at all levels; surprisingly nonstrategic decisions; poor communication among departments and across management and leadership

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider expanding beyond the narrow pillars of your mission; take staff morale seriously--it's very low; demonstrate true strategic thinking; show genuine compassion

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
