    Pros

    flexible schedule, casual environment, some good benefits

    Cons

    Disorganized. The vacation, paid holidays and especially salary are not on par with other area universities. Their "exempt vs non-exempt" is a joke. Not exempt employees are required to report that they only worked x hours, regardless of how many hours they actually work. Which is basically the set-up of exempt employees, however, the latter have higher salaries, more vacation and better benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Follow your own policies. This practice is unethical and demoralizing.
