Pros

- Passionate, vibrant community
- Many fun and engaging opportunities on campus
- Beautiful work surroundings
- Flexible schedule in comparison to private sector
- Lots of vacation/pto time
- Overall high quality of co-workers

Cons

- There is high turnover in my department as the staff salaries are not competitive enough to keep highly qualified people around. Also, there seems to be quite a few high level management and many lower level administrators, but not enough mid-level positions available. This makes it much more challenging to promote from within and many coworkers leave to other departments for professional growth.

Advice to Management

Create a department hierarchy where qualified staff have the opportunity to be promoted from within. Keep staff salaries competitive so we don't have such a high turnover rate.

    Pros

    Brand name brings credibility, lots of funding for research.

    Cons

    No health insurance for part time employees. No accountability for tenured professors.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more women and people of color. Pay maintenance labor full time wages, and provide health care to all students and maintenance labor.
