    Pros

    You have access to the entire University when working on projects. Non-management staff are great people.

    You may attend graduate-level courses at a minimal charge (books, etc.). This is part of your benefits.

    Cons

    Leadership was able to do as they pleased. There were no consequences for poor and unethical leadership practices.

    Advice to Management

    Treat others ethically, professionally and kindly.

    Pros

    Relatively good compensation package. Great group of students to work with. They were motivated and dedicated. Many of my coworkers acted as part of an effective team with whom I enjoyed great communication and camaraderie.

    Cons

    The world of academia is far different than the corporate world. Performance and quality metrics are absent.

    Advice to Management

    I hate to strum an old guitar, but consider replacing tenure with the more modern concepts of adjusting salary based on performance and quality metrics.
