    Negative Outlook

    I worked at West Chester University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Fully unionized. Nice location in Chester County.

    Cons

    Parking is horrible. Salaries are way below market. Seriously top heavy with management. Managers have been there forever and have no new ideas. Management philosophy enables every person as a decision maker so there is no clear direction or leadership. Some departments are revolving doors due to inept and entrenched administrators.

    Advice to Management

    1980 wants their management philosophy back. Hire new people that are tapped into modern business practice and know how to manage people in a real world environment.
