    Pros

    Good benefits, decent paid time off, free tuition for employees, discounted tuition for their families.

    Cons

    Administrative staff has been cut drastically over the last 6 years. Individuals are expected to perform the work of two people for the same amount of money. Yet faculty continues to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Either pay your administrative staff more or look into bringing back more office workers. As the faculty continues to grow, it is unrealistic to expect employees to take on more and more work without additional compensation or help.
