    Pros

    Employees tend to have a lot of autonomy in their day to day work. The campus is beautiful. Health benefits are very good. The administration has recently been responsive to issues of salary stagnation. As the campus grows, there are many opportunities to implement new technologies and pedagogies. The campus offers a good variety of amenities and entertainment for a school of this size. Support departments are very competent. Staff/faculty research is generally encouraged and celebrated.

    Cons

    HR and leadership go to great lengths not to deal with interpersonal issues (including harassment, bullying, chronic communication failures). The administration rarely consults campus stakeholders in making major decisions; the administration is not transparent about funding decisions. Leadership roles and hierarchies change constantly. Major divisions exist between upper management and the rest of the campus. Within the campus community, divisions are just as stark (professionals v. paraprofessionals, tenured v. non-tenured faculty, faculty v. professionals, departments against other departments). Paraprofessional contributions to the campus are not valued; paraprofessionals receive little or no funding for professional development. It is a combative environment at every level. Gossip and rumor-mongering abound; it is not uncommon to hear individuals openly speak about their desire to undermine other individuals or departments. Merit is not a predictor of success or advancement,.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle-managers need real management training and more support from upper management. Paraprofessionals deserve more respect and support. There needs to be a major change in the campus culture regarding gossip and interdepartmental cooperation. The administration should be more transparent about long-term visions for the campus and how funds are allocated.
