    I have been working at George Mason University full-time

    Pros

    Most of the co-workers are great. There is a decent amount of camaraderie with them .

    Cons

    Everything else. Management has caused the turn over to be very high and the morale to be so extremely low, they have had to bring in an outsider to evaluate the department. Senior leadership has been very aware of the problems for years and yet they do nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Leadership needs to make the hard decision and realize that they keep losing good employees because of the bad work environment and no amount of managerial coaching will fix that.
