Good opportunity for personal development, convoluted administration.

I have been working at Northwestern University

ProsThey provide some of the best benefits available, especially the tuition benefit. There are ample resources available to grow in your career if you are self-motivated and self-directed.

ConsAdministrative procedures are confused and convoluted, Turf wars seem to abound between departments and administration. The tenure system has enthroned too many professors who think they have earned the right to treat non-faculty poorly, and badger the administration when they don't get exactly what they want.

Advice to Senior ManagementAs with all universities, revamp the tenure system to provide for continuing accountability for professors throughout their entire career.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
