    Pros

    The people who work here work very hard.
    Values are nice.
    College producers graduates that are relevant tot today's workplace.

    Cons

    Need to develop downtown space. We are struggling to fit all of us on the hill campus, when we have essentially abandoned buildings downtown.
    Strategic and succession planning is basically non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on a space, strategic, and succession plan. Empower smart people to be effective, and promote from within. Work to achieve parity in faculty, exempt, and non-exempt staff.

    Pros

    The students are fantastic and engaging and want to learn. Most co workers are great too. Staff are friendly to each other.

    Cons

    There are leaders in some departments that do not know how to utilize their staff, and involve them, using the skills they hired them to use. Too much ego and intimidation used to get their way, and a blind eye turned toward any kind of recognition or pay evaluation or updating a job description to accurately describe position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you have a secretary in your department, value them enough to make sure that they are paid at a level that they can even sustain themselves at. Below poverty level is not acceptable.
