    Pros

    Good culture, people like working for Drexel and let it show (when Moral is high). The President is a public face and tries to keep spirits high). Great Benefits

    Figure out the financial situation of the University so employees don't always worry that layoffs could take place at the end of fiscal years.

    Staff burn out/apathy, human resources moves at a snails pace, most professional positions pay OK, however, you will only paid once a month, tons of political infighting, power struggles and limited upward mobility.
