    Pros

    Good brand, campus is lovely. Great energy on the campus itself. Wonderful student center with good restaurants.

    Cons

    Many of us on the administrative side are now located away from the campus on the other side of the 101. We work in what was a warehouse converted into cubicles. The environment is sterile. No natural light. You have no sense of working on a campus. People on the administrative side are viewed as second class citizens and not seen as foundational to the mission of the University. Staff are also underpaid and overworked. There is a lot of burn out. What is important to leadership is faculty and staff. It can be a downer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Speak more often and more genuinely about the importance of staff. It is great that President Nikias is now doing an annual State of the Campus address to the staff, but staff are mentioned in about one or two sentences. The accomplishments mentioned are all about faculty and students. Many leave that event feeling cynical. There is occasional lip service, but many staff unrecognized.
