    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at University of Chicago full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Great benefits (unless you're pregnant) - Fans of the 1980's can enjoy an immersive experience - You will never take your work home with you

    - Outdated attitudes and approaches to work - Reluctance to try anything new - No upward mobility

    Advice to Management

    Quit. Hire new talent who were trained in their roles vs. having teams of people who fell into their roles 30 years ago.
