    I worked at Indiana University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with Academic Advisors and supporting students.

    Cons

    People seem to be promoted to get them out of hot water in some cases, and there is a lot of secrecy in administration regarding decisions that impact employees, which is in stark contrast to laying out an issue and involving all in some sort of collaborative process to solve it. You have to jump through all kinds of hoops to be hired, but then are not expected to use your skills, mostly just follow orders from above that are expected to not be questioned. Restructuring is eliminating many older employees so that younger ones are being hired for less wages and more time spent at work.

    Advice to Management

    Honesty, collaboration, and respect would go a long way to (re)gaining trust because you have an amazing highly educated and genuinely caring and dedicated workforce.
