    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at University of Michigan part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, access to expertise in a variety of fields, and competitive pay.

    Cons

    Too much focus on the growth of the endowment and student body, with less emphasis on quality of education. The College of Engineering is trending toward an entrepreneur/startup-driven culture (ala Stanford) which really does not seem to be in line with the purpose of a public university. Overall, much more conservative than the common perception of Ann Arbor might imply.

    Advice to Management

    Refocus on prioritizing education.
