      Pros

      Good benefits, lots of vacation time, friendly work environment, gorgeous campus, great working with students, campus events

      Cons

      Much of the workforce is low skill/low will and not much has been done to encourage employees to modernize. Many employees have longevity and little motivation to learn new things. Difficult to get things done because of faculty resistance.

      Pros

      The benefits are great as is the work life balance. Generous time off for Christmas and half day Fridays during summer. Cheap gym membership.

      Cons

      Not enough room for growth and low pay with no bonus. Top management has been plucked from the corporate world and work environment starting to reflect that.
