    I have been working at Hofstra University full-time

    Pros

    They have a great work life balance

    Cons

    This has by far been the worst university I have worked at so far. Most universities are political but this one stands in their way for success. Its pitiful, and unless you are accepting a job for a better work/life balance I would suggest staying away. not worth it.
    Also, they historically pay very low in terms of salary.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging your staff and let them succeed and achieve.
