    Solid working environment, knowledgeable staff that had been there a long time, pleasant people to work with

    Cons

    You're not working at a salary comperable to your ability. People tend to stay forever, impeding advancement to higher levels. Silo effect is major impediment to getting jobs done or affecting change.

    Advice to Management

    Take pride in your work and people. Realize that we are working for the students and that every change we make should be for the betterment of us as an institution of higher learning for our future students.
