Great community
Supportive peers
Flexible work schedule
Many people in the staff have been working there for years

Cons

The pay is not the best, and raises are slow and small (but that's a government issue)

Advice to Management

Improve the communication channels between the higher management and lower management. If not, then cut some off the levels in the middle to flatten the organizational structure.

    Pros

    UCA offers tuitiion reimbursement, so you can continue your education. They have some great Masters level and PhD level programs. The workout facility is nice and the campus is beautiful.

    UCA is a challenging place for minorities. Also, you are often required to work a huge amount of overtime without being compensated.

    Advice to Management

    Have your management lever personnel take a management course where they are informed of the laws regarding weekly work schedules. Also, upper management needs to be trained on topics pertaining to diversity and race relations.
