No opinion of CEO

Pros

Overall it is a stimulating intellectual environment where there is a lot of neat research, scientific development, advanced education, and cultural / community events.

Cons

Faculty and executives are treated differently than staff. They get high pay and some lucrative perks that are not available to staff. There is a disconnect between management and staff; some managers are not in tune with what their staff do.

Advice to Management

Pay is the best way to recognize and reward the staff that run your departments and programs. Low and zero pay increases are big dis-motivators. Eliminating one high level administrator position can save half-a-dozen staff jobs.
