Pros

-department is small, which means the workload is manageable

Cons

    Pros

    You can list this place on your resume, it opens a few doors.

    Cons

    Lots of work for a not a lot of return. Little to no actual direction, projects are uncoordinated and poorly planned and executed. Too much red tape and at the end of the day faculty and students pay the price with poor IT support and service while watching the largest department on campus completely overspend the institutions budget.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work smarter, not harder you need to put the students and their needs above the needs of the institution, priorities here are way out of whack.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
  2.  

    A welcoming and challenging place to work, if you don't get too tangled up in bureaucracy.

    Pros

    Warm and welcoming community, strong emphasis on education and the whole person that genuinely extends to their employees. Beautiful setting in a fun city.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy can be a nightmare, leading to frustrating communication and a glacial pace of change across the university.
