Approves of CEO

I have been working at University of Kentucky full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Collaborative atmosphere and everyone willing to help teach
Flexible hours but long
Intellectually challenging

Cons

Had to wait a very long time to get my Ph.D.
Ph.D. isn't worth nearly as much for a career as what it used to be.

Advice to Management

Try harder to accommodate your worker's future career goals.

    I worked at University of Kentucky full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are good, but deteriorating.

    Cons

    Lower level employees, who get the work done, are treated like they don't matter.

    Advice to Management

    You need the people who get the work done more than you need the over-paid administrators. The place is top-heavy and the workers are struggling to keep up.
