    Pros

    The student population is terrific to work with, and you cannot pick a more attractive location to work. Senior leadership has great ideas for moving the Colleges forward and working to make the student experience better.

    Cons

    Sometimes there can be red tape/politics in Higher Ed that reduces efficiency and slows down potential improvements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let politics impede progress.

    Managers refuse to address the long term employees lacking skills even with the technology tools given to improve internal processes.
