High tolerance for things that need fixing but in the end this place exhausted me.

I worked at Oklahoma City University full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Had a good deal of autonomy to grow a program.

Cons

Had to deal with massive inefficiencies and lack of cohesive coordination across affected departments. Serious budget issues are facing the entire institution while they continue to take on debt.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find ways to better and honestly communicate with all employees. Remind those in leadership positions that the university is not their personal playground or piggy bank.

    I worked at Oklahoma City University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The students were amazing and professional. Best students I have ever worked with when I was there.

    Cons

    The faculty is toxic and greedy for power. It consists of male domination making females feel superior. They keep admitting huge amounts of students into programs that can't possibly sustain the growth without hiring adequate faculty to teach them. Also, huge hiring turnover. People leave after a few years due to toxic environment and overloaded classes. Some of the faculty teaches seven to eight classes a semester. It's unheard of at other Universities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the students more like adults and not like children, power hungry administrators churning large amounts of students with poor faculty to student ratio, quite a bit of sexism, and needs more faculty to cover overloaded classes.

    I have been working at Oklahoma City University

    Pros

    Free tuition. Students are fun to work with.

    Cons

    The pay is extremely low hours are long some leadership is cliquish and shows unfair partiailiy to who they hired. Lots of micro management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Judge a person based on their performance not on what others tell you about them. Get to know the people doing the work. look for new blood!
