    Pros

    A quiet place to work. Time-off policies are clear. Time off for fitness. Much training is available to help staff to move forward and upward.

    Cons

    Policies change very quickly. Upper executives come and go quickly, increasing stress at times. Some supervisors can protect staff from this stress, and some cannot.

    Advice to Management

    Strive for stability. Institute policy changes more slowly and explain reasons behind changes. Consider not just execs but others at school--even in small ways--in terms of changes and policies.
