    Pros

    Job had clear expectations of roles and responsibilities, good training, decent salary. Department attempted to keep job fun during busy times with games, food, etc.

    Cons

    Things changed too often and implementation of changes were not well thought out. Role of advising transitioned from being an advisor to working in call center. Students did not take their education seriously and looked for handouts, made unrealistic demands or felt entitled.

    Pros

    Friendly people, Many people will go out of their way to help or find answers or solutions. Managers support flexible schedules for work life balance. Free degree programs to further career. Things are always changing.

    Cons

    Often hard work from onsite staff goes unnoticed. Culture is changing and old values and beliefs are not valued as highly. Seems old solutions to new problems are being recycled every 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Take time and effort to understand talent across the organization. There are a multitude of people that just want to help people achieve their dream. It seems that as of late all of the emphasis has been on the Learners not the people that encourage and mentor them. Make sure that communication is deciphered to all include all employees not just management.
