    Pros

    Lots of great and inspiring stories to draw from. The overall purpose of the institution is a wonderful thing.

    Cons

    Too many meetings to accomplish anything. Projects sometimes aren't able to be completed within a year due to the endless amount of input each sector of the institution. Things move slow and change is looked upon with fear and suspicion.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the internal processes to realize any new initiatives.

    Pros

    Because it's an educational institution employees have access to tuition waivers and such. There is a general encouragement and facilitation by management for staff learning and development. Backgrounds of coworkers are varied and often educated and interesting.

    Cons

    There is a glass ceiling between the "Classified" side and the "AP/Faculty" side. A lot of the issues with any huge employer are there; A lot of internal bickering and strife, union disputes, funding issues, a feeling of getting lost in the machine.

    Advice to Management

    Even more encouragment for employee development.
