Suggestions for improvement

  • Give everyone an opportunity to grow and to use their skills to their fullest. Don't hire people unless you have a clear idea of what their job responsibilities and growth plan should be. When an employee tries to help determine this, or tries to be proactive, listen, don't be combative.

I like about the employer

The insurance, retirement and education benefits are awesome. They have an employees' association which bargains for the benefits, which is sort of like a quasi-union, but they don't protect people from employment abuses. The benefits are super inexpensive and the retirement fund is contributed to by the college. It is an old fashioned pension, meaning you contribute nothing! You are vested after 3 years..but it could be sooner according to hours worked. It is some secret formula they use. So try to stay until you are vested and you can walk away with a good sized rollover. I was a salaried employee so I don't know what the deal is for hourly employees.
Another pro is that the school's reputation is marketed in such a way that it seems fantastic. It is not what it seems, but when you tell people you work at SNHU, they gush. It looks good on your resume but It is all a giant facade.

Support from Management

The leadership is weak in understanding of basic management.

Teamwork

What is that? They try to get us toigether but it is always to add more work.

Level of Autonomy

You have no autonomy. They watch everything and leave little autonomy to the instructors.

Communication

Frequent communications.

Office/Work Environment

I am not sure what this is. They want to be great but put the burden on the instructors.
