    Pros

    Hardworking group of dedicated employees with sincere interest in students education and college experience. Your opinion matters and there are many opportunities for university wide involvement.

    Cons

    There are limited avenues for career advancement. Private colleges have suffered in recent years with the downturn of the economy and money is always tight.

    Pros

    If you can last for a year and a half, you can take four credits per semester tuition free, but that is likely to change in the future. You used to be able to take credits for free from day one. If the course is during the work day, good luck getting your supervisor to give you permission to attend. Each department has a lot of autonomy, so you don't really need to worry as much about spending money on coffee and your department can run things contrary to the rest of the university, if it pleases. You will also be punished (or not punished) departmentally for infractions.

    Cons

    Undergraduate admissions is a *hit show. If your position interacts with undergraduate admissions, set your goals low to ensure you won't be very disappointed when even those basic expectations aren't met. Human resources is a *hit show. Good luck trying to find written policy about many of the things that are important to you. Some things are there and some things aren't written down. Since departments are so autonomous, less work gets done across the university and you have to battle with getting things done across departmental lines. Be wary of undocumented "certificate courses" from School of Education, which went undocumented by this university's registrar.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that you are ready to handle all of the in-fighting and territorial-ism. Don't skimp on hiring experts rather than recent graduates.
