    I worked at Rhode Island College full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Tuition remission and pretty campus.

    Cons

    Hierarchy is impenetrable at all levels. Professional Development not supported. Little promotion from within. Where you are hired is probably where you will stay.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to lower level employees. They are usually the ones most mission oriented.
