Neutral Outlook

I worked at Charles Drew University full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Providing service to the underserved.

Cons

Highly political - it is all about who you know.
Poorly managed - administration turnover is 2:1 in the almost nine years I was there.
Incompetence is rewarded - so long as it is passed-on and done correctly by someone else.
Poor compensation & benefits - HR has a bad image within the institution.

Advice to Management

Best of luck to the current administration.
