    Lots of work. Sometimes deadlines are difficult to meet. There is not a training program and you are expected to learn quickly. Other than that, not many cons.

    Pros

    I work at a regional campus and I must say that it has the best culture. Supervisor care deeply for employees. Very flexible environment (i.e. Vacations, sick days, family emergencies, etc). Great co-workers. Awesome benefits!

    Cons

    Pay. Higher Ed. doesn't pay much. Lots of silos at main campus. Most employees at regional campuses do not feel appreciated beyond their local setting.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know regional campuses.

    Pros

    Benefits and some services offered on site to employees such as the clinics

    Cons

    Low compensation, no regard for employees' experience, education, or longevity in the organization. Nepotism has taken precedence over competence.

    Advice to Management

    Start rewarding employees adequately and review your compensation system. Walk the walk and stop the embellished speeches and empty promises.
