    Worked at the Office of Information Technology with a lot of great guys with a good community feel. Everyone gets to know each other with meetings every week to discuss each others work.

    Cons

    Sometimes have days where youre not sure if you accomplished much. Other days you are working on projects all day long.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Due in large part to its wealth, the college is in a good position to take care of its employees. Hourly wages are fair, and there is a strong sense of community among employees.

    Cons

    As often happens in very traditional settings, sometimes people end up retaining a position that they are not necessarily suited for. This turns out unfortunately when lower ranking employees are more knowledgeable than their supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    Annual retraining of staff supervisors would resolve the problem mentioned above. A great deal of the difference in knowledge relates to technology. Since the less prestigious positions deal with certain things on a daily basis, it makes sense that the higher position(s) might be somewhat oblivious.
