    I have been working at City University of Seattle full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    PTO, tuition benefits, nice building and location. Friendly people. It's always a good day when there leftover food from a meeting in the kitchen.

    Cons

    VERY slow pace, lack of motivation among employees, everything needs to be approved which AT LEAST about a year.-- No joke. Promotion within and room for growth is far and in between. very low compensation and no raises. Not each department is created equal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    show more genuine appreciation for employees. Train managers how to appreciate employees. Review managerial styles. Increase motivation.
    Review your programs-- as am employee, i would not recommend the MBA program to anyone who actually wants to learn. give raises-- and regularly. People are leaving CityU for a reason...

    I have been working at City University of Seattle full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There's some very dedicated staff with extensive experience. Faculty genuinely care for their students.

    Cons

    Lots of stagnant people who have been in positions too long. Zero accountability for follow through from leadership. The partnership with NU had been disastrously implemented. Unrealistic goals for growth compared to internal resources to make it happen. Cross-departmental communication is horrible. Compensation is reprehensible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a training department. Conduct a needs analysis. Do an employee engagement survey. Make the Edison Idea Box anonymous.
