    I have been working at George Mason University full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Strong support for telecommuting. Great medical benefits. Relaxed dress code. Defined benefit plan for current employees.

    Cons

    Faculty simply do not know how to supervise or manage highly skilled professionals. They are treated as nothing more than support staff. There is no 360-degree review so there is no way that faculty are held accountable for poor management skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Any faculty member who supervises classified professional staff should be required to receive management training on a recurring basis.
