    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Iowa Wesleyan College full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    No expectations, no standards, no accountability. Show up, and you are fine. Ask questions, and you are in trouble.

    Cons

    Abysmal administration, worse faculty. Total waste. Should be shut down, but has political connections.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Iowa Wesleyan College as a contractor

    Pros

    The campus is beautiful, the people are friendly and they follow through with what they say they will do.

    Cons

    Lots of "red tape" and hoops to jump through, not always the most prompt with communication and response.

    Advice to Management

    Try to expedite communication and promptness of replies. Even if they are auto generated, it is at least nice to have the communication acknowledged.
