    I have been working at Columbia Southern University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Attention to physical, mental, and emotional health of employees is given and a holistic approach to employee satisfaction is approached by leadership; Professional development opportunities are there if you seek them out; overall work environment is inclusive and supportive of individuals needs to flourish at work.

    Cons

    Sometimes feels like a call center rather an institution of higher learning

    Advice to Management

    Emphasize professional development, employee satisfaction, and job stability more-so than numbers.
