    Pros

    Business-minded university, fiscally responsible, excellent benefits, great location in pullman, customer-centric culture, positive mission and rewarding work. There are really wonderful people and a surprising number of approachable and down-to-earth faculty. Fascinating and impactful research abounds.

    Cons

    There is some dangerous senior leadership in this college, proceed with caution. Brace yourself for manipulation, cliques, and BIG egos. If you can navigate the politics and kiss hiney at every opportunity, you'll be okay. They don't care about people and you aren't a citizen of this college. People may work here, but the culture does not create deep, lasting, employee investment. Culture and experiences can vary wildly from unit to unit. Elson is a responsible and hardworking president.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen (and act), invest in your employees/units, be human and care, encourage work/life balance.
