    Pros

    The Professors are the best part of this University. I loved working here. I learned so much from professors and will carry all the knowledge I gained to my future jobs.

    Cons

    The administrative staff is a little slow on doing their jobs, everything takes longer than it really should. They could also benefit from being nicer to students and staff.

    Advice to Management

    have more trainings for administrative staff and maybe hold them to a higher standard
