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

    Pros

    Good people--including students, faculty, and staff.

    Cons

    This is niggling: A bit of a closed loop in terms of interacting with other higher ed institutions in Chicago. But that's because personnel are satisfied.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the upward trajectory begun with Fr. Garanzini.
