Pros

Pay is great
Some faculty and staff are really helpful, caring and supportive
Depending on your teaching area, you will always have courses to teach

Cons

High Turn-Over rate in all departments
Depending on your teaching area, you may not have courses to teach
Some department chairs do not work well with some instructors

Advice to Management

Change is good and inevitable however staff and faculty that worked well and with others should remain in the college. Changes should also be communicated better than a one line announcement via email. There should be a balance between new and old faculty on how classes are assigned while not basing it all on who has been employed the longest considering they both do the same thing; teach courses!

    Pros

    great place to start in the field of instructional design or educational technology. Good practice.

    Cons

    One major con is that once you have Westwood on your CV, it is difficult to get a job anywhere else. People all around the area distrust Westwood because of their terrible ethical standards. Management is micromanaging and looks over your shoulder at everything you are doing. If you are in the bathroom "too long" you get suspicious looks from your manager. It is a culture of distrust.

    Advice to Management

    you need a CEO that espouses and encourages solid ethical standards.
