Pros

if you can survive the speed (or lack thereof) and want to retire safely, this is a place for you. great for people with no aspirations, professional or otherwise.

Cons

low wage, aging staff, no real incentives to develop, political in an academic sort of way, slow moving, academic in nature, no respect for professional staff

Advice to Management

hard to say really. It is all relative to the education environment. Something tells me that the "university of the future" isn't going to look like this.
