    Pros

    Lots of days off (2 weeks at Christmas, every Friday during the summer, spring break, winter break, Easter, Thanksgiving)
    Very casual atmosphere, but not a lot is expected of you
    Some colleagues are friendly
    University if finally spending money on the school and upkeep - so it's beginning to look like what these kids are paying for.

    Cons

    Depends on who you know - if you work for a terrible boss then you are not going anywhere and there is no one who can, or more importantly, will step up to help,.
    Usually in May or August, key people on campus are let go because of a "change in direction"
    Lots of uncertainty about "will I be next"
    Once you have a target on your back, you will be "fired for cause" - and they will fight your unemployment
    No room for promotion and very faculty favored (to the extent staff are

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Makes some changes in long term uppper level staff that haven't kept up or are here because they can't go anywhere else.

    I have been working at Texas Wesleyan University

    Pros

    Stress-free environment. 4-day work week during the summer. Lots of holidays.

    Cons

    Lots of read tape, bureaucracy and politics. Senior management are clueless on IT and are reluctant to delegate and empower an IT leader. Low pay compared to virtually anywhere else, including other education institutions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire, support and empower an IT leader reporting directly to the president.
