    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at University of Hawaii at Manoa for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The students are friendly and interested in learning and colleagues are a great group. The location is wonderful.

    Cons

    The administration are bearucratic and tend to stifle imagination and creativity. They also resist change and form gangs that "get-along" and prevent others from advancing.

    Advice to Management

    Look for more people with private sector experience and be open to appreciating their experience for providing better service to stakeholders.

    Instructor 

    I worked at University of Hawaii at Manoa for more than a year

    Pros

    There are lots of opportunities for professional development and training as an instructor, as long as you keep your eyes and ears open to them.

    Cons

    Budget short-falls affect many aspects of UHM experience, most notably salaries and the conditions of buildings, classrooms, and other physical resources on campus.

    Advice to Management

    Pay graduate students enough money to live in Honolulu. Many departments could accomplish this by accepting fewer students in their graduate programs. In this way, departments will be able to attract and retain overall higher caliber students.
