      Pros

      The campus is beautiful, and the students are fantastic; Non-salary benefits are really good

      Cons

      Higher Ed politics are on full display regardless of seniority level; Decisions can often be made above your head (by VPs and AVPs) without your input that have huge impacts for your work and the students you work with

      Pros

      The campus is beautiful, and the pay scale is competative

      Cons

      The benefits and payment process is antiquated and opaque. I had numerous interactions with HR that ended up drastically changing my pay schedule without consulting me.

      Pros

      Beautiful campus, great retirement and tuition remission benefits for employees.

      Cons

      They outsourced and are paying thousands of dollars for a company to take a look at our salaries and budgets (we are a non-profit and already underpaid) so they are starting to consolidating positions (we already do like 5 jobs on top of ours for low pay) and start firing people, just because they want to raise tuition costs which are already extremely high. They will not look into administrators making 6 figure salaries or the coaches (we don't even have a real sports team) yet the coaches make 6 figures. Everyone is afraid of losing their jobs, this is creating very low morale
