- Ave Maria University, Inc.29.Nov 2016
The culture is highly politicized. Faculty have no input in governance. Top-down corporate governance in a university setting. Criticism of the administration is not accepted. Morale is extremely low. High turnover.
Support from management
Expect no support from management. Management exists to further their own careers.
Communication is only in one direction. Occasionally you will receive emails from the administration.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Professors have no input in university governance, no matter what their credentials or how distinguished they are.
Overall compensation for your work
No. Faculty members are grossly underpaid.
Office / Work Environment
Morale is depressed.
The campus is was designed to preserve surrounding natural habitat. Land is set aside as a preserve.
Work-life balance is good. Faculty are free during the summer, but very busy when school is in session.
There is no tenure. Also, the university promises faculty three-year rolling contracts, but never delivers them. Many long-time faculty members are on one-year contracts.
The campus is very handicap accessible.
It is a university campus, so the jobs are about as safe as can be.
The work is challenging because a large fraction of the student body is unprepared for college.
