    I have been working at UNC Wilmington full-time

    Pros

    There are some nice people on the faculty and staff at UNCW that do really care about educating students.

    Cons

    This is without a doubt the most dysfunctional institution I've ever worked at in my long career in higher education. The chancellor is largely clueless about the world of higher education, and isn't interested in learning. He falls asleep in meetings (quite often), micro manages (poorly), and uses fear as his primary motivational tool. He sets unrealistic goals that are based on nothing more than passing whims and flights of fancy. The high turnover rate at UNCW is directly related to how the chancellor runs the university.

    Advice to Management

    Put students and their education first. Everything in the chancellor's strategic plan is there solely for the glorification of his massive ego.
