Unbalanced Workload
Academic Advisor (Current Employee) –  Columbus, OHFebruary 28, 2018
It varies from department to department, but in my department, it's not very employee friendly. Depleted staff is expected to carry the load of full staff.

Politics rule, toxic culture, self enriching leadership
Confidential (Current Employee) –  Columbus, OHDecember 18, 2017
Very political and out of touch leadership intent on self enrichment. COO, Marketing and IT are yes people to Prez. CFO is politically ineffective and will throw his people under the bus for self preservation. Declining enrollment not addressed. New ideas and ventures readily pursued without diligence or concerns for resources. If you like wild rides, political intrigue, and helping make ineffective leaders rich then this is the place for you.
Pros
paychecks dont bounce, learn how not to run business
Cons
stressful, political, ineffective, toxic culture, low moral

The workplace culture is great, no discrimination, everyone is friendly and work together as a team to meet company objective.
Pros
Fit Club for staff and Free breakfast

Fun place to work but too political to keep good employees
Chief Technology Officer (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHSeptember 1, 2017
People in the highest positions are petulant and feel deserving. They manage peoples lives from a position of power rather than quality and culture. There is little support from HR and the clique of leaders at the vp level is very difficult to work to work under given the culture of back stabbing in the non-educational workforce.
Pros
Working teams are great
Cons
Senior leaders are very political
