    I have been working at Tai Sophia Institute part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The students are wonderful and passionate about health. The school also fills a much-needed void in integrative practices

    Cons

    There is no support for faculty, no efforts to coordinate or enhance classes and faculty are way underpaid. Adjuncts are supposed to be underpaid, but at MUIH, it's about 1/2 the compensation at a community college.
    Yes, you'll always have a ready pool of faculty by hiring new MUIH grads. They'll work for little pay, and they don't yet have the wisdom to guide because they haven't yet had real life experience.

    Advice to Management

    wake up while you still have something to salvage. This could be a great school, and it's sad that it's not.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Tai Sophia Institute full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, academic environment, dedicated employees.

    Cons

    Tai Sophia is small and very cliquish. Employment includes an indoctrination into the Institute culture, including a employment-required seminar with lots of hand-waving and an assortment of new age philosophies. Management plays favorites and the Institute hires a high percentage of their own graduates as staff. Tai Sophia is also seriously in debt to a variety of lenders, many of whom are former students and faculty. They haven't paid on that debt in years. I really have no idea how they maintain their accreditation.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating this University like a family. It's too big and has become dysfunctional. And pay your debts.
