Pros

The students make it worth while . . We have a shiny new building. It looks nice.

Cons

The lack of involvement at the direct level by the administration is terrible,. They are simple collectors of huge salaries but are not involved with the actual goings on. There is no direct support f staff, of which I am one. The Dean is the supervisor of all staff and is NEVER involved with our daily work needs or problems. Our supervisor is in fact not involved.

Advice to Management

Get off your rumps and look around at what goes on. Not twice a year for 5 minutes. Frequently. They operate by remote control and are not involved in actual operations. But the place looks nice.

    Some of the pros are that there is an open door policy and communication between supervisors and employees. Employees are allowed to express their concerns.

    Help employees understand how things wok and grasp the big picture but do continue the open door policy and communicaton
