    I have been working at University of San Francisco full-time

    Pros

    Supportive work environment; students are engaged and thoughtful; many staff and faculty have been here for a long time, so it feels like a community of educators; socially responsible; generous benefit packages

    Cons

    Not enough opportunities for advancement; even with well-paying positions, it's difficult to be competitive in such an expensive city; not enough representation of women or other minorities in positions of leadership across all divisions of the university.

    Advice to Management

    USF is not immune to the general struggles that San Francisco is going through. That being said, retaining employees is only going to become more and more challenging as the city becomes increasingly expensive. Some large-scale planning for how to manage change in this difficult situation needs to happen (i.e. campuses outside city limits, online learning, etc.).
