    Pros

    The medical benefits are generous. PTO and holidays are nice. Access to TRS. Passionate staff and faculty dedicated to mission.

    Cons

    Bullies in leadership roles are out of control. Retaliation is the norm. No repercussions. Does not stand by its core values let alone its own policies or laws in same cases. Morale is toxic. Grants and funding deficits are all too common.

    Advice to Management

    Would fall upon deaf ears and blind eyes...
