Support from management
The culture is very divisive. Getting a good project off the ground requires unyielding will power because the leadership doesn't have a concrete focus or a vision.
The university can be a maze for anyone in a wheelchair. Certain areas are very challenging to navigate and require very lengthy routes to get to one place.
Suggestions for improvement
- Start with a unified vision for the future that's communicated and pay people! Stop handing over horrible resources and demanding high level results. Start providing excellent resource so someone can make something stellar for a change.
What I like about the company
Everyday a new prospect to do something wonderful for the greater good comes along and there's an opportunity to chase after those aspirations.
What I dislike about the company
Actually helping the greater good requires demanding to be heard as a person, not giving into political pressure, begging for what you need for your job, and constant demands to explain why everything isn't perfect. Imagine your boss hands over craft sticks and glue to build a house with no guidance. You build the house. The house looks actually decent for craft sticks and glue. Your boss walks in and says "where's the shed and garage I asked for? Why can't you make this house be sturdy and look like my brick house? That's what I wanted." That's what working at KUmed is like.
