    Pros

    location:close to home, short commute

    Cons

    pay half of industry rate, 3rd world labor expectations, cultural hostility on part of departmental manager toward women-upper management turns a blind eye to multiple complaints pertaining to departmental manager's bizarre, borderline violent and discriminatory outbursts/behaviors from various stakeholders and employees campus-wide.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    VP and director need to be replaced or system will be run into the ground by alienating good employees through destruction of morale.

    I worked at Shenandoah University

    Pros

    Not for profits, stable and slow to changes college in a valley. Enjoy small communities only 2 hours drive to Washington D.C metropolitan.

    Cons

    Head heavy organization with titles everywhere. Difficult to maneuvre and bring changes to this organization. Abusive management is allowed due to silo culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut down management positions that are not productive. Recruit, promote and drive quality incentive to employee at operational level. Apply 360 degree staff performance matrix.

    I worked at Shenandoah University full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    My colleagues are beyond a doubt the best part of working at SU. They are fantastic people and excellent at their jobs. Administration is helpful and efficient (for the most part) and I have had minimal negative experiences.

    Cons

    The students are good people (with few exceptions), but I was constantly surprised by how little common sense and study skills they had. It made actually teaching my subject area difficult when I had to focus so much of my time on basic tasks like how to read a syllabus and what a complete sentence is. Students expect a lot of handholding, and that's not why I got into the profession. If I wanted to teach high school I would have skipped all that extra time in graduate school.
