Mellow and easy yet usually unstimulating place to work.

Assistant Professor (Current Employee) San Luis Obispo, CA

ProsGenerally easy going management, it's easy to work here (con: and not ever think again)
Expectations from above are achievable, can even be limiting (con)
Beautiful geographic area, lots of outdoor activities available

ConsInadequate academic/professional collaboration
Management does not really promote research and progressive ideas, but certainly pays mouth-service
Good-old boy network of university leaders (old, white, conservative men): case in point new university president
Small, slow town, boring if city-livin' appeals to you
Homogeneous demographics- 80% white, hard-core religious Christians, very conservative

Advice to Senior ManagementTake some well calculated risks, eg
Hire newer, more dynamic management and professors
Spend more money to support research
Pay professors more

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
