Caring about both staff and students

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Washington, DC

ProsAU has great benefits, including tuition remission and a 2-for-1 match on up to a 5% donation to your 403 (b) retirement account. All the staff whom I work with truly value and care about the students.

ConsThere is, of course, internal politics, and the management skill can very from department to department. At its worst, upper level academicians may make decisions without collaborating/ seeking consensus with offices that may be impacted by those decisions.

Advice to Senior ManagementThink about how your decision impacts relevant offices on campus.
