Pros

Bright, engaged students. A pleasure to teach tutorials.

Cons

Inability to give some students the grades they deserve (i.e. C's, D's and F's) because of concerns related to parental involvement.

Advice to Management

Let the students fail if they deserve to. It will serve them better in the long run to know that there are real consequences to their actions (or inactions).

    Pros

    Great environment -- smart people, stimulating, lots of free lectures and talks by anyone you can imagine. Excellent benefits. though some are being phased out or lessened for new employees

    Cons

    It's very decentralized and can be frustrating. If you are looking for everything to make sense and be orderly, that will depend on how cohesive and well run your own work unit is. Lots of variation in the quality of the management. Very good senior leadership but not focused on understanding and motivating staff (as opposed to faculty). Mobility is difficult once you rise in the ranks.

    Advice to Management

    Find a champion for staff at the officer level. John Pepper did this well.
