      Positive Outlook
      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at Lehigh University full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      - They provide a good benefits package, including tuition remission for employees and their dependents. Ideal for those seeking a Masters within their degree offerings. - It's a beautiful campus covered in historic buildings - Access to multiple events particular to an institution of higher learning (arts and guest speakers especially)

      Cons

      - They are moving towards a tiered parking system ($0, $250 and $500 for proximity to office buildings) as of June 2019 and will be aiming for a pedestrian campus - Many departments are designed so that employees have minimal opportunities for advancement, lateral moves are more likely than promotions - Administration may speak about loyalty to the institution, but do not expect that this institution will be loyal...
