    I worked at CSU Dominguez Hills full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love the population that we worked with - lots of low-income, first generation students of color that have overcome a lot of barriers. There are some people that are very hardworking, passionate individuals.

    Cons

    Almost no accountability, a ton of people do not do their jobs, yet do not get fired (and a lot of them are in the union). Many people want you to either "manage up" or they micromanage, rather than providing adequate support and supervision, but also ownership. Terrible management structure with people that are stretched too thin.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your managers accountable and emphasize the IMPORTANCE of regular supervision and adequate support.
