    I have been working at Loyola University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Loyola Chicago is an extraordinary place brimming with academic quality, exciting interdisciplinary research and scholarship and state of the art educational facilities. The commitment to knowledge, self development, and social justice is palpable, and the faculty and staff are devoted to students Its first lay leader, Dr. Jo Ann Rooney, is bringing fresh thinking and new perspectives to the place. (Glassdoor needs to update the CEO listing, Fr. Garanzini has been gone for almost two years.)

    Cons

    As at many universities, many silos by college, discipline, function. Leadership is actively addressing ways to create more channels and structures for better communication and innovative collaborations. Fundraising ina re-building phase.

    Advice to Management

    Keep advocating for students and faculty. Keep your eyes on maintaining the student experience that is so string here but also be aware of the threats from outside and the negative commentary about colleges and cost.
