    Pros

    Tuition remission other than that nothing

    Cons

    Working at the Dingman center feels like you’re in the movie ‘’Mean Girls.” The directors come off thinking they are better off than 90% of the university and they treat you based off of your title.

    There’s high turnover for a lot of different reasons. Treat your employees with respect, be upfront about roles and responsibilities and take accountability for your employees’ actions.
