          No opinion of CEO

          I have been working at University of Nebraska full-time for more than 3 years

          Pros

          Somewhat flexible of a schedule. Benefits are good.

          Cons

          Compensation isn't based on performance for this position. I will get paid the same whether I work hard or not, so it is hard to get motivated to put in extra effort.
