    Pros

    Very supportive of advancing education and professional development, a lot of opportunities to try out different roles in the university, a refreshing change after working in the corporate world for 15 years.

    Cons

    Low pay, stifling bureaucracy, plenty of academic politics, major funding issues, some faculty were demanding and very difficult to support.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep San Jose State a university instead of molding it into a corporation. Education should not be so rationalized. Focus should be on learning, not the bottom line. This should be the mission of all the CSUs, not just SJSU
