    I worked at Milwaukee School of Engineering full-time

    Pros

    The staff are good people, committed to the mission of higher education. People are very helpful to each other.

    Cons

    The small town culture lends itself to a lot of gossip and politics. Nothing much stays confidential, even in HR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at the atrophy in some departments. To maintain the institution's reputation, bring in some fresh blood with new ideas and fresh energy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more with your employees. Students are our most important customers but don't think your employees matter. every once in a while have the employees review management. We may have something worth while to say.
