Company Culture

Fairness and trust are not good descriptors of this institution.

Support from management

No one trusts HR or leadership.

Teamwork

Staff works well together, but committees are led by admin who aren't trusted.

Freedom to work independently

Depends on the department or division.

Internal Communication

Depends on the department or division.

Gender Equality

Campus strives to improve, but has a long way to go.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Faculty, yes. Staff, no.

Career Development

Budgets are very low for professional development.

Overall compensation for your work

Salaries continue to decline as workers are replaced with younger less experienced personnel.

Office / Work Environment

Not bad technology, but are still lacking infrastructure in some older buildings.

Environmental Friendliness

Students and faculty are the most aware.

Work-Life Balance

Some are required to produce more and more while others are not.

Company Image

Only students, parents and alumni speak fondly of the institution.

Job Security

Everyone is fearful except tenured faculty. With good reason.

Handicapped Accessibility

Accessibility renovations slowly began to meet standards by mid-2000s

Workplace Safety

OSHA o.k. Only after a bomb threat in 2002 were policies implemented.

Challenging Work

New ideas or trends proposed are often trumped by admin.

Inclusive / Diverse

It is promoted but still very lacking.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Recruitment of good leadership has been a problem for decades.

What I like about the company

The graduates from the programs are typically outstanding. Faculty and programs are very good.

What I dislike about the company

Culture and climate for staff is precarious and highly political
