    Pros

    Great people
    Positive work environment
    Excellent benefits
    Vibrant campus
    Positive culture

    Cons

    Not much room for upward mobility - Too many people get a job and stay in that role for a long time (mostly because of the excellent benefits). This limits the opportunities for new employees to advance quickly.
    Lots of turnover in the last few years

    Protects and enables predatory behavior

    Advice to Management

    Stop allowing staff - including faculty credibly accused of sexual harassment to continue teach. Some credibly accused faculty engage in pedagogy that fosters intense one-on-one situations: no tests or quizzes that occur throughout the semester in a venue where all students are present. Instead, a limited number of writing assignments that comprise a significant part of the student's grade - panicky students concerned at the end of the semester, meeting with a person who has predatory tendencies - in a situation where much is at risk - not good. Also do not allow credibly accused faculty to teach and hold administration positions within the division that houses their department. Seriously! Students report to a chair - the chair fails to act - then they need to go to the division deans office - where the predator works!!?
