I am looking for a challenging position in order to utilize my educational skills and what management capabilities gained from Stanford and Capella.
student (Current Employee) –  Santa Barbara, CAMay 11, 2014
I have learned that the CEO or top executive is only as good as the team that they are coaching and leading. The hardest part of my last job was raising big money when the parent entity has resources to run the museum a 501 c 3 entity.
Pros
having a family and community ties.
Cons
short breaks and working through lunch many times and missing exercise times.

A great idea that has passed over its potential
NETWORK ADMINISTRATOR/WEBMASTER (Former Employee) –  Santa Barbara, CAMay 7, 2014
Experts in Organization Management who can't manage their own organization. Beware of non-technical management who will be unable to appreciate or assess the contributions of technical workers. The hardest part of the job was dealing with those types of persons. The most enjoyable part was working on projects with technical colleagues and achieving success.
Co-workers at Fielding are by and large good people but management when I was there fostered an atmosphere of distrust. I know that there has been much change in management since I left two years ago, so it might be on the upswing...but be wary.
Pros
Good benefits and salary
Cons
Low morale, lack of respect or confidence in technical personnel

Bus. Sys. Manager School of Human / Org. Dev. (Former Employee) –  Santa Barbara CAJune 27, 2013
Typical days require multi-tasking and various levels of skills.

I learned to value high-quality interactions with professionals and academics.

The management ranged from fantastic to unbearable. My co-workers were for the most part multi-talented and had strong respect diversity, social justice and humane working environment.

The hardest part of the job was that there was minimal training or standard operating procedures and that scope-creep was the norm.

The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the Faculty and Students. We attracted a very high-caliber faculty and student base from all over the world.
Pros
The ability to work with high-caliber professionals and academics
Cons
The workload bunched up around three times of the year, and so the effort required at certain parts of the year was extensive.
