    I have been working at Furman University full-time

    Pros

    Furman offers a great place if you are looking for a career. It has great benefits, nice people, and obviously the dependent tuition exchange program that lets your children attend Furman for free or have access to a large list of schools where the benefit could apply.

    Cons

    Furman is controlled by the faculty. If you are looking at an administrative career, not having a Ph.D will block you from many leaderships positions.

    Advice to Management

    Have greater staff governance structures. As it stands, staff have little say in the policy decisions that affect them the most

    Pros

    A team that wants to let you explore different types of marketing and design.
