My department offers a flexible work schedule to afford a good work/family balance.
Inaccessible upper management, very small pay increases.
I worked at San Francisco Theological Seminary full-time (More than 5 years)
Some of the staff and faculty are absolutely wonderful folks.
Poor management from the top down. The staff are treated disrespectfully in that they have no voice and are compensated lowly. HR is only there for the top brass, if you have a grievance, it is best to keep it to yourself. The lack of money and assets is a serious negative force amongst the entire campus.
Advice to Management
Put yourself in the shoes of your lowliest employee, because the last thing they want to hear is how you spent your entire summer in Paris while they had a "staycation" because affording an actual trip is just a dream on their salary. Stop bragging and adding titles to your name. Act like the Pope and mix with your people, then maybe you can earn back their respect. While you're at it, give them a raise and a bonus, it would do wonders to the morale.
