Negative Outlook

I have been working at College of Western Idaho full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

some faculty are still hopeful

Cons

The president is the realization of the antagonist from, "Despicable Me." He truly is despicable in every essential and nuanced definition. The Board of Trustees, like the president, incapable of administering a functional institution. They have poured millions of poorly managed funds into projects and programs without a plan.
It is truly unbelievable that a conservative community like Boise has let this nonsense go on as long as it has.
Tried working there and had to leave.

Advice to Management

Board of Trustees - resign
President - retire

    Pros

    The work has some intrinsic value.
    You actively add to a new College, ie. processes, culture
    The people you work with are great.
    The students are understanding and very helpful.
    The growth potential is exciting

    Cons

    This is a new school that is publicly funded. It is not established and lacks the ability to pay up to market wages.
    There is also a lack of resources, facilities and staffing.
    The lack of policies makes for a wild west atmosphere at times.

    Advice to Management

    Tough decisions are required and most understand the need for them. Keeping everyone informed would alleviate the constant uncertainty that most employees feel.
