    Pros

    Tenure offers some job security and people tend to work together in the interest of students. Administration is supportive and willing to listen.

    Cons

    Benefits are gradually becoming less attractive. Financial situation of the university is bad and probably means further cuts will be made in staff and faculty.

    Advice to Management

    Put in place robust mechanisms that offer career development opportunities for those faculty who are willing and ready to move up

    I worked at Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) part-time

    Pros

    The office I worked in was great. Staff was very professional but also laid back.

    This position was great for gaining knowledge of how to handle feedback/critique, getting your feet wet dealing with deadlines and project balancing.

    Supervisor was very flexible with scheduling around school/outside life.

    Cons

    Honestly the only con isn't really a con. It could be a stressful work environment sometimes but only because of volume of work/deadlines. Which is how office life can be.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!
