      no transparency, no flexibility

      Pros

      Have some great people, but many are retired; Not much pressure, thus not much improvement for personal development; Health insurance is okay, good amount of vacation time; You see good students here; Good place to earn some money if career improvement isn't considered.

      Cons

      Leadership is ridiculous, no transparency. If I can say that it was okay before COVID19, then now, it is NOT okay to NOT let students/employees know what's going on. When there are confirmed cases, no official notification sent to employees (the president does send out emails after, like a month after, if the person died), no alert, no work from home unless you have COVID19, or under the "social pressure"(like during the holiday time). Not much flexibility, no preventive actions, students/employees are on site like normal, very limited online recruiting resources (interviews/trainings/paperwork are done on site), very limited online student resources (online advising can have extremely long queue, paperwork need to be dropped off on site and in-person, career service is just fooling adolescent).
