    Pros

    Tuskegee is the best place to work because of the environment. The teachers and students are infectious with joy. The best part are going to the campus events to be a part of the Tuskegee Community.

    Cons

    Tuskegee Univeristy downsides would be the sometimes unfortunate involvement of local residents who stir up the campus and student body. These actions can put everybody at risk of negative situations. The security needs to be better with that element.

    Advice to Management

    Tuskegee Univeristy needs to improve campus security and police protection. The campus community body should feel safe at all times.

    Pros

    The history of the place is amazing. Also the laid back environment and low cost of living make it a nice place if you do not want a lot of stress.

    Cons

    The upper administration is to disconnected at times. Also the amount of in fighting and needless competition really slows down things

    Advice to Management

    Spend less time stirring the pot and gossiping. Focus on making the university better and not yourselves.

    Advice to Management

    To the new president, you have a good team of people who want to be supportive. All you need to do is treat them respectfully and trust them to do their jobs. Micromanagement and awful behavior will only get you Yes People who will do or say anything just not to be bothered.
