      Pros

      Excellent president, very transparent, and wonderful people...faculty, staff and students. All are dedicated to Roosevelt and the students. The history of Roosevelt is wonderful and very much incorporated into the culture.

      Cons

      Very unstable working conditions...worked there 5 years and there are layoffs going on all the time. The president has done well to be transparent about it and he's doing well to save the university from its financial ruin the last president nearly delivered. But in order to do that, there seems to always be layoffs going on. Always.
