    Pros

    Flexible hours, ability to work and go to class, very good facilities, easy to get around campus, easy to find parking

    Cons

    Management micromanages, not a lot of office space, limited in the amount of resources available, facilities have to be shared among classes and athletics

    Advice to Management

    Take advantage of the students knowledge. Although they are students, they may surprise you in what they know. Allow them to learn without micromanaging them as well.

    Pros

    Family-like orientation to fellow co-workers. Camaraderie among those who are equivalents to your rank. Leave your work on campus when you leave. Offer or consider allowing you to search out training, workshops, conferences to attend to further your learning while on the job.

    Cons

    Higher ups always seemed to say they look out for your well-being in terms of representation, but never saw any movement in terms of progression or salary increase. Not much room for growth. Not much acceptance of "out of the box" ideas. Administration is run by "old blood" and hard to get anything off the ground as far as ideas. However, they have a new Chancellor now as of a few months ago, so hopefully TWU will see some change for the better.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff. They are the ones out there on the front lines, working with the students, bringing back ideas because they experience the work and know what would help. Consider and follow through with compensation increases - these staff members have given their blood, sweat and tears to the students of TWU and deserve it.

    Pros

    The mission to empower and educate women is noteworthy. There is opportunity to reach student in north part of the metroplex.

    Cons

    -Faculty and staff salaries are on par with community colleges. The "big" market adjustment this year was less than cost of living. We are terribly under paid.
    -Some older admins need to move on. They are not willing to listen to younger faculty who have more vision on how to improve the programs.

    Advice to Management

    -Get rid of the Deans/chairs that are holding their people down. Hire more energetic and motivated leadership.

    Pros

    Your administration is available to you around the clock, and you can almost always find someone to talk to. Payment is quick and direct, however only once a month.

    Cons

    Response time can be very slow with administration, and departments do not effectively work well together (Financial Aid and Registrar)

    Advice to Management

    Basic questions appeared to be difficult to answer and more training needs to be implemented with all staff.
