    Pros

    I like working here, and expect to stay here for at least a few years, in part because the institution is committed to student learning and student success -- as opposed to, say, research. Also, a stable environment with a pension plan and friendly coworkers. And having a library at work is pretty cool.

    Cons

    As the University has grown and continues to grow, the number of staff employees has not kept pace. Not even close. As a result, it takes *forever* to get basic things done. I don't blame my fellow employees. They generally work hard, but there are only so many hours in the day. Also, many processes remain manual and paper-based. A lot of time and money wasted -- resources that could, and should, be used to help students.

    Advice to Management

    Fund the expansion you seek. Hire more staff throughout the University.


  8. Great place to work if you are a student, but it was a very slow pace

    Pros

    Very committed and friendly staff, that are not only care about the quality of your education but also put so much importance on cultural value. It's a public school with all private school qualities.

    Cons

    It's very hard to find a parking space at that time. I hope they already solved that problem.

    Advice to Management

    There is a need to buy some nearby properties and expand with additional parking space added as well.
