Disapproves of CEO

Pros

The leadership was very supportive of professional development opportunities. They're willing to allow employees to pursue conferences and webinars if the money was there.

The leadership has a big dreams, and they are come from the right place. It's inspiring if you buy into the mission.

Cons

The school is growing rapidly, but without the infrastructure to support such efforts. Student services has not expanded at a rate to support the growing student body. A good portion of the student body requires remedial support services, and there aren't enough going around.

A fair amount of croneyism exists at the top. It's disappointing that even with leadership turnover, a lot of dysfunction persists.

    Pros

    The mission at Roosevelt always has the potential to change the world and already has. The benefits are top notch, especially the 12% [of your salary] retirement benefit and 100% tuition reimbursement for you and your dependents.

    Cons

    Decisions seem to be made without looking at the big picture. Basic student services such as registration and financial aid have suffered as a result of elimination of support positions.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down. Think before you act. Change for the sake of change is counterproductive. Management needs to listen to the needs of their student body first.
