    Pros

    Benefits - health, eye, vacation

    Cons

    Managers who cannot "manage" people should be limited to administrative duties. Communication within a campus and between campuses is difficult. Too much waste of tax payer money. Inefficiencies and reduncancies in system.

    Managers who cannot "manage" people should be limited to administrative duties.
