Many staff members are delightful and helpful.
Location is very nice if you live in the North Shore area and want to work in Higher Ed., but do not want to drive in and out of the city with rush hour.
Lack of staff, so you end up doing work that should be spread amongst several staff members
Lack of funding, resources, and opportunity for professional development
Poor management in some of the offices
Overall, this would not be my first choice if looking for a job in Higher Ed. Administration.
