Pros: benefits include nearly free education
Cons: no loyalty to employees, hr is uselessdealing with poor work environmrnt, and incompetent managers
Brandman is a part of the Chapman University System. When it was a college within Chapman it was a pretty good place to work. Once it became a separate entity, the management went into the crapper. It became a depressing, demoralizing place to work where employees are just a number and are treated accordingly. There is a big turn over in employees. We had a fantastic, talented and hard working team in IT. When management brought in a new CIO and Director of Technical Services, who were chosen for who they knew not what they knew, everything began to deteriorate. Every person in the Technical Services Dept. complained about the DTS to the CIO and/or HR. HR told us, and I quote: "Suck it up and learn to deal with it." Ultimately 3/4 of the technical services team were terminated so their jobs could be outsourced. Ironically these same people got consistently HIGH reviews on end user satisfaction surveys, but of the numerous things the staff heard about the CIO or DTS, we NEVER heard a positive comment. One vice chancellor even used the word "Useless" to describe the CIO - and the DTS is FAR worse. I would NOT recommend Brandman as a place to work unless you want a nearly free education and are able to tolerate a very poor work environment.
