      The vision and operatonal environment took a wrong turn. This can only be attributed to governance and leadership.

      Pros

      A great educational insitution with a long history and sound inclusive values

      Cons

      Governance and management took some wrong turns with devastating financial consequences. I mean that the financial risk analysis was not robust enough to keep the institution solvent.

      The most terrible place i have worked at

      Pros

      Working with very nice colleague and supporting students.

      Cons

      The atmosphere was somewhat positive when I joined but in the space of a few years things degraded. Management started being directionless and problems started pilling up. The management's technique seems to have kept people under pressure by making decisions at the last minute to push staff members to their limit. Unfortunately people started leaving and not being replaced. Restructure after restructure, nobody seemed to know who was supposed to make a decision which made it impossible to support students efficiently. I am happy i was able to develop some skills and work with some very nice people but I mostly resent every single decisions i had to make because of the constant bullying that started becoming the norm towards the last year and a half the company existed.
