Inept Leadership
Employee (Former Employee), Newark, DEMarch 16, 2014
Cons: see above
There certainly are many capable faculty and staff at UD, but several administrators tend to be petty and vindictive. Higher education is decidedly low on their list of priorities. They focus instead on building turf, acquiring personal perks, and scoring political points. Self-interest, boorish and unethical behavior, poor treatment of staff, failure – more... to recognize their own shortcomings as supervisors, and unbridled vanity often pass as "leadership."

Administrators constantly snipe at each other and engage in turf battles, resulting in high employee turnover and low faculty and staff morale. My boss often bragged about her many petty arguments with other university administrators, oblivious to her own childishness. She publicly touted the importance of collaboration and teamwork while working behind the scenes to sabotage others’ efforts. More than once, my boss slammed the phone on reporters who dared to ask legitimate questions about her decisions and actions affecting the local community.

I saw UD administrators bully their own and others' staffs. They routinely break university policies knowing they won’t be held accountable. They cozy up to local community leaders and residents in public while expressing contempt in private—especially when those residents share concerns about UD activities affecting their communities. Community concerns are mocked behind closed doors. The residents of Newark and Lewes should always remain vigilant, as UD administrators won't hesitate to engage in political tricks and regulatory runarounds to get what they want.

No matter what academic degrees they hold, some people are simply not good leaders. Unfortunately at the University of Delaware, many sit at the highest levels of administration. – less

Certified SAS advanced programmer with strong programming ability and a solid background of statistics.
Teaching Assistant on SAS Programming (Current Employee), DE, NJ, PA, VA, NYC, and nearby locationsFebruary 13, 2014
I have been described by past employers and professors as hardworking, effective at analyzing problems, self-motivated, and detailed oriented. My work experience has taught me how to work efficiently, set goals, and how to manage my time. While I excel at working independently, I also enjoy working as part of a team and value the contributions of the – more... members. When needed I am also capable of taking charge of a task and know how to recognize and encourage the skills of others in order to effectively complete projects. I am motivated by new challenges and I am comfortable performing multiple tasks to meet project deadlines. One of the ways I add value and make contributions to an organization is to provide innovative ideas utilizing my knowledge and skills. I am passionate about my work and always strive to exceed my personal goals, as well as employer expectations. – less
