    I worked at Roosevelt University full-time

    Pros

    The students are fiercely passionate about social justice. Strictly a 9-5pm job.

    Cons

    Their executive leadership is a revolving door, they can't seem to keep someone in these top tiered positions, nor are the people they hire motivated to work with those of us "on the ground" that have front facing positions with students. The salaries the institution pays its faculty/staff is laughable. No room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring consultants who don't seem vested in the long term success of the institution. Include mid-level management in decision making, not just administration. Pay your staff what they are worth, and maybe you'll keep some talent at the University.
