    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Not that much stress on the job. Great hours and some flexibility. Great insurance benefits, time off, and holidays. Everyone is really nice.

    Cons

    Too hierarchical and things move at glacial pace. Fellow employees tend to stick around for too long causing lack of innovation and updated skills. Management seems to be out there for themselves and no enough for their subordinates.

    Advice to Management

    Strive for less hierarchy and more flat organization. Union and management standoff needs to end as soon as possible. With all the activities going on within the University in terms of growth, the University should be more willing and is able to provide more to its unionized staff.
