Pros

Nice work environment with generally dedicated colleagues. People care about the overall mission of the University. Department is close-knit group of friends.

Cons

Overworked and underpaid compared to the vast majority of colleagues. Administration has inconsistent focus on marketing and financial bottom-line; on the one hand the low student-faculty ratio is touted while its labeled as unsustainable internally.

Advice to Management

Clarify and narrow the mission of the University. Eliminate programs and remote campuses that don't fit the vision, regardless of whether or not they are cash-cows. Increasing selectivity and attracting better students who are willing to pay for a better education will enable you to bring compensation up to peers. Relying on the good will of faculty to tolerate being underpaid and overworked in the guise of some spiritualized commitment is inappropriate.
