    I have been working at Northeastern University (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    nice location, nice campus, clever advertising to attract students with money

    Cons

    incompetent leadership, culture of greed, it's commonplace for people in leadership positions to bring in their friends for jobs (often these friends are not qualified), sexism in the advancement department, some questionable fundraising tactics, board of directors not really engaged in oversight, mediocre academics, a lot of in-fighting in various academic departments

    Advice to Management

    bring in an organizational development consultant to weed out incompetent and nasty leaders
