    Pros

    Tuition benefits are good to have access to and the university has several good programs which are competitive with other schools in the area. It is also the largest private school in the state and that carries with it certain benefits. It is fun to work around students and when your customer is very young and has a unique point of view, you're constantly presented with new challenges. This is especially true of the technology on campus because the "millenials" have different expectations than the older generation that runs the place. The focus for most departments isn't on making sales goals.

    Cons

    Because most of the departments don't have a goal as far as how much revenue they contribute to generating, it is difficult to find metrics for doing performance evaluations. Parking is nearly impossible when the students are on campus and permits get pricy. The location is great, but the neighbors often complain about what the university and the students are doing, sometimes rightly so. Because the university has a smaller number of administrative positions, job advancement can be a little limited and because it's easy to know and work with a good number of individuals on campus, it can be difficult to move around.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great to have clearer job paths.
