Pros

Higher ed is a great industry. A campus setting teeming with faculty and students is a rewarding place to work. State benefits (health, etc.) are really good.

Cons

WCSU underpays its staff as compared to other Connecticut public higher colleges and universities. Administrative faculty are in a union which flattens pay increases despite performance.

Leadership tends to be weak.

Advice to Management

The emphasis on hiring and strengthening teaching faculty is warranted, but the administrative faculty needs some help, too.
