I worked at Hobart and William Smith Colleges

Pros

The student population is terrific to work with, and you cannot pick a more attractive location to work. Senior leadership has great ideas for moving the Colleges forward and working to make the student experience better.

Cons

Sometimes there can be red tape/politics in Higher Ed that reduces efficiency and slows down potential improvements.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't let politics impede progress.
