    I worked at Midwestern University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    nice clothing given by President. promotes healthy lifestyle and work/life balance. if you are comfortable working for a supervisor who is a "puppet" and a numbskull you may be happy here.

    Cons

    questionable practices of accounting basics...if you are comfortable working for a supervisor who is a "puppet" and a numbskull you may be happy here. HR officials DO NOT check both sides of an issue before issuing/supporting discipilinary actions...management thru gossip. Focus energy and attention to the staff members PASSIONATE about their work and not just sittin' around crying about everything. Don't be fooled by the "nice-nice" behaviors that you see :: and keep your mouth shut if you want to keep your job: even if regulations are being violated....caused too much anxiety for this hard working technician ("mentor").

    Advice to Management

    read a book. about leadership. leadership. leadership,.

    I have been working at Midwestern University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, students and facilities

    Cons

    The administration is ridiculously under qualified and do not care at all what the faculty think. They make knee-jerk reactions and then scramble to have other people fix things. Lies are a way of life here and I 100% KNOW that people have lied and will continue to lie and corroborate stories to save their own butts. The culture is a nightmare. The only reason most of us are still here is because we don't have anywhere else to go.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to clean house at the level of the college administration.
