    Pros

    The OU has a great reputation an is a privilege to be associated with it.
    There is great opportunity to be part of a wonderful mission of providing educational access to the many

    Cons

    Like many big institutions the OU is bureaucratic, and processes can take a long time to come to fruition

    Advice to Management

    Remain true to your mission

  2. This institution lacks basic management skills, so overpay and recruit the all sorts of wrong people
