    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Rice University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Talented, energetic students
    Travel perks (though was far more limited than at peer universities due to budgeting differences)
    Campus-wide perks, like hearing world leaders speak, free lectures from scholars, discounts to some area restaurants and companies

    Cons

    Office management was rigid, biased, and bureaucratic, but the management has changed entirely since I left. It may be a lot more dynamic and respectful now.
    Lack of trust and even respect of staffers (by mgmt) and among staffers
    Cliques and gossipy culture (may have changed since mgmt changed)
