Pros

The benefits are wonderful. Summer hours are great, hope they continue. There is a family-like work environment. It is very caring.

Cons

Favoritism, different departments are treated differently. There are different expectations depending on where you work or who you report to. Budget situation has not improved.

Advice to Management

Take the time to get to know the support staff. There are a lot of good things to be said.

    Pros

    In my experience you can get away with things here, leave early. It's a small place, if you work hard you can really develop a program.

    Cons

    The university has a budget problem and continues to make some of the same imbalanced decisions that lead it here. Long term employees are treated very poorly over time. If you go most years without any cost of living raise, you can imagine where you will end up after spending your career here.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating the university like a place for funding vanity projects.

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

    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 Management

    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.
