    Pros

    Really great benefits and chance to experience Division 1 athletics, world-class arts and wonderful people.

    Cons

    Really depends on your manager. Need a better system to get rid of bad apples.

    Advice to Management

    Hold your leadership more accountable. Get rid of troublesome AVPs that are only concerned about themselves. Recognize and retain good talent.


  8. In a transition

    Pros

    As the only University in a wealthy state, they tend to be well funded. Tuition is low. Students tend to be respectful. The community is small making it rather easy to assimilate. Great opportunities for outdoor activities such as hiking, climbing, and skiing.

    Cons

    They have been in a transition for the past several years with the a new president, several searches for deans, turnover in the provost office, and several professors leaving. Once they have a new, positive leadership, things should get back on track. Since the community is small, shopping, restaurants, and health care are limited. Drives to Cheyenne and Fort Collins are necessary if you want a mall, a good doctor, or a nice restaurants.

    I have been working at University of Wyoming full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Coming to Wyoming is great because you will be able to get lots of individualized attention (the classes are very small). Also, the professors are very accessible and the support from other campus services (financial aid, office of the register, exc..) are always prompt and able to resolve most issues in one trip.

    Cons

    The city is very small: there is not very much to do here and if you want more than Walmart you will have to travel two hours or so. Additionally due to the small size of the school there are a lot of just awful teachers for the low level entry classes, making learning difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with improvements to campus, keep the student activities (especially the Friday night drinking alternative ones - as almost everyone drinks), and continue to keep the low tuition.


  11. Great place to school

    Cons

    You have to initiate what you want to do.
