I have been working at University of Colorado Colorado Springs

Pros

Most of the management follows a servant leadership style, where they believe in positively helping their employees to grow and develop as professionals. This has been really valuable in my experiences working here.

Cons

The leadership team often seems to have their own agenda. They are very effective at accomplishing change and keeping our campus operations efficient and cost-effective (sometimes through very creative accounting practices), but they are often dismissive of lower management's concerns or needs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Leadership team needs to focus more on academic and research growth and the needs of students over the auxiliary departments. Many auxiliary areas have seen a boom in growth and development while student-specific areas have stagnated.
