    Pros

    Well known company for the area Free stuff working for a university (e.g., t-shirts, events)

    Cons

    I guess it can vary depending on department, but in my experience I’ve seen: -high turnover -heavy middle management with few admins who are overworked and treated as scapegoats. -toxic environment with management who believe that being tough is the best way to lead - even though people on their team keep leaving. -Management views you as a “worker bee” not someone they can invest in and develop. It’s a very one-sided transaction. -admins are given zero support. You’re doing someone else’s work for them… so they will micromanage you to death until it’s done “their way”. Yet they refuse to communicate what their way is up front and expect you to read their minds. It’s maddening.
