Suggestions for improvement

  • I personally think the university should privatize and do away with tenured professorships, large salaries for Admin Professionals, and the focus of importance on sports as a revenue-generating vehicle.

What I like about the company

They make career development and training opportunities available.

What I dislike about the company

The culture is very much embedded in the old ways of doing things. New ideas are often met with skepticism and it always seems to boil down to whether the funding can be secured to purchase the tools needed to do the work effectively. The upper echelon always seems to get their raises and bonuses, but the hourly employees suffer because there just "isn't enough money to go around."
