    Great benefits for vacation, health insurance and sick time. The employees there are decent and overall want the best for the institution.

    Management plays favorites at times. Unfortunately, this can spill over into drama in the office and with employees. Besides that, there are no complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair and just in all matters. Also, acknowledged people for their extremely hard work and contributions to each team.

    Benefits and job stability, most co-workers are very helpful. Majority of the teaching faculty are awesome.

    Managers are clickish, unable to speak with any level of management in my department or HR confidentially without the party being name knowing exactly what was said. Then you being called into their office immediately after. No career advancement opportunities in each department.

    Breakup the clicks in Management, reprimand all parties involved and not "coverup" what was done by upper management.
