Some areas need some serious trimming of the fat, while others struggle to maintain a minimum support presence due to under-staffing.

Advice to Senior ManagementCUC needs a top-down evaluation of all academic programs, administrative practices, and staff distribution.

    I worked at Concordia University Chicago full-time for more than a year


    Pros: The best part of this job was the coworkers I had. Everyone was outstanding, did their job well,… Cons: Management, aside from the extreme low pay, is terrible. Management is disrespectful to their employees, manipulative in their behavior, and ignorant of their employees… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
