    Pros

    Small campus. Close to downtown, restaurants, shops.

    Cons

    There is no money for salaries but money to buy whatever upper Administration wants and if it isn’t what they like, they buy something else. Your money is spent on unnecessary items to impress people and bump up an ego for the latest and greatest tech toys. Traveling is at its best,including spouses. The Old Main offices have very high turnover of staff. Raises at 1.5 percent only. Overworked and understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house starting with Old Main. Give incentives to all staff.
