    I worked at Drew University full-time

    Pros

    Small but supportive department feeling. A real team feeling within department. Little contact/conflict with other departments bc of spread out layout on campus and upper people didn't interfere with day to day running of academic departments. Autonomy and trust given, at least in my department..no micromanaging and unnecessary/ unhealthy politics and favoritism behind bare minimum. Room to grow with low pressure, supportive co-workers, really makes it a pleasure to get to work every morning, not a dread. A hidden gem and you can make good money and they still have a defined pension not 401k at least while I was there. 2010-2015. Good health insurance too. Don't overlook bc it's a low profile school, there are major opportunities here from entry- level to highest administrator. Hiring is quick, little red tape and rigid procedure. Best place I've worked.

    Cons

    Not sure if it's a definite disadvantage, but many systems, especially software, and just internal procedure in general. Can seem antiquated... departments don't really talk well to each other unless in the same building and that can cause frustration and inefficiency. Technology roll-outs have generally been problematic to desiasterous concerning new software for signing up for classes, procurement, budgeting, u name it. It is s weakness can b embarrassing when kids can make third schedule with new program wen last year it was sple or when $1000's of dollars inexplicably appear and disappear in the department budget accounts after an elaborate rollout of new accounting software. Still upper management claims nothing is wrong? Stuff like that:)

    Advice to Management

    Get a handle on your new software budgeting issue and stop pretending. Nothing is amiss. Make maintenance generally more responsive to complaints, both promptly and with correct info regarding the prob.
    One time, the second floor above us wanted thier keypad locks rekeyed, and instead they rekeyed both the second floor and first floor as well, causing a major hassle on the first floor due to poor communication.

    Interview

    Relatively quick hiring process and professional. I was contacted via email after applying and given a date and time for my interview. I then met with the Chief and Lieutenant. I was then called for a second interview to meet with Chief, Lieutenant and a university administrator.
