Suggestions for improvement

  • publicly available budgets, better communication, more available cafeterias on south campus

What I like about the company

good benefits, available parking (for non-downtown campus), many resources (but little communication about what is available)

What I dislike about the company

public university should have a public budget, previous few years have seen embezzeling and poorly managed building projects and university requests donations from alumni and employees without knowledge of where/how money i sbeing used. University is currently taking away budgets and departments to pay for new medical school
