    Pros

    Wonderful place to work. The University of Louisville is fair and equitable place to work and thrive. Leadership at UofL retains and rewards talent. I hope to be with them for years to come.

    Cons

    They are a big university system. That said, there are always negatives associated with being treated like you are in a system, versus being a part of a system.

    Thank you for your recognition to those that chose to work hard. I have seen it time and time again. You truly are an institution that rewards what they would like to see repeated.

    I worked at University of Louisville full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Colleagues and working with students. That’s it but I’m required to write twenty words. Children’s books on good behaviors should be mandatory for all administrators.

    Cons

    You better suck up and snitch to the boss if you hope to get a promotion! Regardless of experience and qualifications. EXIT INTERVIEWS SHOULD NOT BE DONE OR REQUESTED BY THE DEAN OF A PARTICULAR SCHOOL BUT SHOULD BE VIA HUMAN RESOURCES!

    Advice to Management

    Actions and words need to match up from top down. Don’t beg money from staff and faculty when the fat cats up the line are lining their pockets with money that should be for benefit of students (with ever increasing “fees” (aka rip off) and tuition) and hard working faculty and staff. LISTEN TO THE FACULTY. GET RID OF DEAD WEIGHT AND TOXIC MANAGEMENT
