Reviews - What employees say

Company Culture

The culture of the overall college is probably closer to a 4 - but in my particular department I'd give it a 3.

Support from management

My current management team is very supportive and helps me to get things done.

Teamwork

In most departments, this rating would probably be better, in our department this is significantly lacking.

Freedom to work independently

My supervisors have always been hands-off leaders, while still being available to help when needed. This is one of the college's stronger areas.

Internal Communication

There is a lot of talk around open communication with employees but it is sometimes not enforced.

Gender Equality

Women are always treated equally here and have the same opportunities.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Many employees stay here well past 45, even past retirement age, and are always treated with respect and given many opportunities.

Career Development

I feel that I have a clear career path ahead of me and plenty of room for growth under my current management.

Overall compensation for your work

Compared to similar roles, the compensation is much lower. This is something I knew coming in to the position and have accepted for the work environment.

Office / Work Environment

The main campus is a very comfortable work environment, but some of the satellite buildings are poor working environments. Poor air quality, ceilings leaking, etc.

Environmental Friendliness

Recycling is available in all of the buildings.

Work-Life Balance

Everybody at the college promotes work-life balance.

Company Image

I love the overall culture of the company and am proud to be a part of it.

Job Security

Overall I feel that my position is stable.

Handicapped Accessibility

Accessibility is important to the college and they have many resources available.

Workplace Safety

OSHA training is provided to the departments who need it, but I'm not sure about other departments.

Challenging Work

The work is somewhat challenging in some aspects but in other areas leaves room for growth.

Inclusive / Diverse

Diversity is one of the college's strong points.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I think the company should take a very close look at which departments are expanding and growing and which ones are remaining the same. Some departments that haven't expanded in a while need to be looked at more closely because they need additional help to keep up with the demands of the college.

What I like about the company

The culture of the college is very employee-driven and there is a lot of support from other employees. In every department there is plenty of room for movement and advancement within the college. Full tuition reimbursement is one of the biggest perks, and it applies either to classes at Goodwin or any of several participating Consortium schools. There is an emphasis on professional development which I believe Goodwin supports.

What I dislike about the company

The college has continued to grow exponentially, but some areas have not grown proportionately. Additional people may be needed to continue the growth curve the college is on. The compensation in many departments is far below the average rate.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Stick to policies and procedures. Dont play favorites, dont let students take advantage

What I like about the company

Loved working in accounting office and helping students with their payments to attend college

What I dislike about the company

They give in too easily when students drop classes. Instead of sticking to the rules that students need to pay they give them grants

Suggestions for improvement

  • There needs to be a significant change in direction to ensure the future of the organization.

What I like about the company

I was given opportunities to try new things.

What I dislike about the company

There are areas of conflict of interest and that money is more improving than ensuring students are getting the support they need.
