    Pros

    Beautiful campus Lots of opportunities to attend intellectually stimulating events Generally very nice colleagues and inspiring students

    Cons

    Low pay where. COL is high Some in management have atrocious management style Ever thinning staff -low pay leads to attrition, often without filling the position again. This leads to low morale.

    Great campus culture and a progressive work environment.

    Pros

    Oxy is a great community with friendly people and beautiful grounds. Because the campus is relatively small, it's easy to know everyone and everyone knows you. Employees and faculty genuinely care about making the campus a better place.

    Cons

    Very low pay. Oxy underpays most positions, as is true with many higher education institutions. This used to be balanced with excellent benefits, but during my nine years I saw many of the benefits disappear with a president focusing on the bottom line. There are still great benefits, just not as many as there used to be. Your experience may different greatly depending on your department; some are better than others. Also, many long-time employees have recently lost their jobs due to restructuring and budgeting, which has contributed to a culture of fear and a more corporate-like atmosphere.
