    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The benefit package cannot be beat. Great health care for employee and family. As a union shop, there is very strong job security. I would take some real effort to get fired.

    Cons

    The wages are incredibly low. The faculty act superior to the support staff. As a union shop, where it's nearly impossible to get fired, there is a lot of dead weight.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that the staff are employed to do jobs that you don't want to do and frankly cannot do (it's not your area of expertise.) Find a way to reward and show appreciation for outstanding staff.
