    I worked at Concordia University part-time

    Pros

    Great students. Free parking. Clean classrooms.

    Cons

    Faculty looks out for themselves and they don't have a progressive, modern approach to teaching students in today's world. It's Mayberry, USA and run by out-of-touch faculty.

    Advice to Management

    Stop coddling your faculty members with known anger behavioral issues - management is complicit with bad behavior from their old-guard faculty.

    Stop passing the buck about your 'broken system' - you're there for a reason, so fix it. Give a damn for once ... just don't collect your check.

    Spend more time developing the untapped talent that students have and less time gossiping about them.

    Give credit where credit is due & listen to good advice when it is given ... if your EGO will allow it.

    Hope you all retire soon and the University has the vision to hire better prepared professors that can offer students a more meaningful education to help them get a job.
