  1. Could be a great place but salaries are insulting and respect for staff is questionable.

    Pros

    Great benefits and so far...job security.

    Cons

    No salary increases in years. Lack of respect for staff, because they focus on students and faculty. New job positions are "low-balling" the salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Think if you can live on the salaries that you are offering.

  2. Students first

    Pros

    People believe in the mission of providing higher education. High emphasis on technology, student services, removing unwanted red tape, communication and empowering people to find solutions (self service).

    Cons

    Motivation, story telling, engaging everyone (some people are always MIA), numerous changes in management, no salary raise in 5+ years

    Advice to Management

    1. Develop metrics for assessment based on results
    2. Identify opportunities to engage over achievers
    3. Less meetings
