Pros

Working for a university is always a good thing, you are surrounded by young people who are working on making themselves better and naturally that will spread throughout the campus. They are flexible with hours and have more of a laid back environment.

Cons

Being a state school it seems like even the smallest decisions are always committee driven. That can lead to things not changing and or things changing just for change sake. Not to mention the titles are ridiculous.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Less groups about planning, and more doing

    Pros

    Large degree of control over your own time. Access to electronic library resources. Stable employer. Interesting work. Good benefits. Good name.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy of academics. Endless special activities that interfere with parking. Lack of transparency in policies and decisions. Little opportunity for growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on improving the learning experience for your students, and less on improving the status of the university in national rankings.
