Suggestions for improvement

  • Many of my colleagues and I do not feel valued. While it is understood that salary increases may not be possible at this point, things like 4 day work weeks in the summer, the ability to work from home on occasion, or casual Friday's do not cost anything but are things that could boost staff morale. Also recognition often seems to be given to the same areas while others who do exceptional work are systematically ignored.

What I like about the company

The students I work with are amazing and continue to push me everyday. I love the work I am able to do, and I enjoy knowing that I have made a positive impact in the life of a student. The medical benefits are excellent and there is a lot of opportunity to network with colleagues in a variety of fields

What I dislike about the company

As are many institutions, we are in a state of fiscal constraint. The current attitude is "do more with less" and it has been this for several years. We are severely understaffed in my area, and it does not seem to be a concern for the president at all (a 75% decrease in staff with an increase in services provided). Work life balance is not a priority for administration and upper mobility is not easily available.
