    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Sheridan College (Canada) full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great collegial relationships in the Faculty of Animation Arts and Design

    Cons

    Unfortunate tendency to hire part-time faculty more than full-time. Trafalgar campus lacking space for all programs.

    Advice to Management

    Cultivate warmer relationships with faculty, rebuild TRUST that has entirely lost during the strike of 2017. Avoid toeing the Hicks Morley and David Scott line.
    Develop a unique Sheridan brand where faculty and administration work together towards a brilliant future. It can be done. We can do it if we do not follow the CEC's toxic policies.
