    I have been working at Northwestern University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Great resources
    -supportive peers
    -freedom and encouragement to pursue goals

    Cons

    -hierarchical leadership
    -lack of faculty-staff communication
    -poor directional leadership at the school level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top level and mid level goals do not seem to align creating uncertainty. Academics do not like uncertainty and may even resent it.
