Company Culture

Different areas have different cultures

Support from management

Support ends at provost level...front end staff rarely consulted prior to decisions being made that affect them.

Freedom to work independently

Varies within departments

Internal Communication

Severe lack of communication

Attitude towards older colleagues

You get stuck... No chance for advancement

Career Development

Must leave home campus to move up

Overall compensation for your work

New hires make more than folks that have been there for decades... Make sure to negotiate any salary offer, once there few raises

Office / Work Environment

My particular office

Work-Life Balance

Very family oriented and understanding of needs

Company Image

Steady decline

Job Security

Nobody is held accountable for their actions or lack of action... Few get fired

Handicapped Accessibility

Some areas are difficult to navigate. Elevators not located in convenient areas

Challenging Work

Only challenging because of poor policies and unclear guidelines

Inclusive / Diverse

Very diverse, but they are so focused on diversity that they make decisions almost solely on race

Suggestions for improvement

  • Have more opportunities for advancement and training. Accept excellent work record in lieu of degree. Some positions require a degree but really only need common sense. Listen to the little guys. Don't base hiring decisions based on race. Limit the number of times people can be on hiring committees. The same groups of people are on all hiring committee because they fit certain criteria. In 10 years I have NEVER been on a committee.

What I like about the company

There are wonderful people in each department. Once you know who they are, you can work together to assist students. The benefits are AWESOME!

What I dislike about the company

Students are understandably frustrated because if broken processes. No clear guidelines and everyone doing things there own way. Reverse racism

Company Culture

Each campus has its own culture. Woodbridge is friendly and family oriented.

Suggestions for improvement

  • ASK the worker bee's for input before implementing changes. Each department can have it's own culture, but there should be consistency in student policies. ALL changes should be announced and policies should be maintained online for review.

What I like about the company

My department is like a family. We all work together and help one another.

What I dislike about the company

There are several campuses and it lacks consistency which is confusing to students. Lack of communication between departments breeds uninformed employees who then give incorrect and inconsistent information to the students. This frustrates the students and makes for unhappy clients.
