Pros

there are no pros with this experience. i'm appalled.

Cons

I've never encountered such a lack of professionalism, bullying, and non-transparency. I was not able to obtain an official offer letter in writing and my salary was substantially reduced after the offer was verbally extended. Additionally, I was pressured into deciding on the position at the end of the business day on friday. avoid at all costs. i've never experienced such appalling lack of professionalism.

Advice to Management

official offer letters in writing should be extended with an offer, not after an individual accepts a position. this is standard policy at most PROFESSIONAL institutions.

    Pros

    Well-known brand, potential to have big impact, helping people

    Bureaucratic, mediocrity is embraced, lots apathy towards the work

    Advice to Management

    Allow those with a different, more modern perspective to be heard. Allow young, intelligent people to thrive instead of forcing them down.
