  • Nothing that comes to mind, it is an incredible place to work

What I like about the company

Our workplace is committed to diversity, inclusion, protecting the environment, and personally has made an investment in me and has rewarded my work and pays me competitively and has promoted me on numerous occasions

What I dislike about the company

Most of our external partners are very conservative while internally our institution is very liberal. That makes for a very challenging dynamic at times

Suggestions for improvement

  • I think flexible work hours and the ability to work remotely (as appropriate) would be beneficial for the overall morale. As a university, salaries can only go so high, offering these other benefits would go a long way.

What I like about the company

Once a part of the UD family, you feel welcomed and connected. I love the people with whom I work and consider them close friends and like family. UD is working towards a better campus, city, and future for the world, not just its students. What a wonderful place to be a part of and see the impact it makes on individuals day in and day out.

What I dislike about the company

There are not many opportunities for growth on the staff side of the university. One can change roles, but not grow (be promoted) within a role. Leadership is working to change that.

  • Nothing that comes to mind, if possible, maybe make daycare discount bigger for on campus employees

What I like about the company

They take an active interest in your life and what they can do not just to help you professionally but your family as well. It is by far one of the most popular places to work in our region. Any job posting is inundated with people wanting to work there.

What I dislike about the company

I have nothing that I find unsatisfactory about my current employer

  • Campus cultures can be difficult because universities leadership and alumni are by in large a conservative base yet the students all colleges need to survive (meaning enroll & retain) are very liberal. Continuing to counter balance between the two will pove a test for all campuses as those divides widen

What I like about the company

Supports not only my family life but also my professional development. I am a graduate of the campus’ leadership institute
Offers a 5 star daycare on campus, though it is costly.
The place is so in demand we are constantly inundated with people wantin to work here.
The biggest draw is free schooling for you, your spouse, and your children

What I dislike about the company

Nothing at all this is an amazing place to work
And I can’t think of anything anyone would ever want to complain about. Though if you are not used to working on campus it can prove to be an adjustment

  • more transparency around difficult decisions, more clarity around our actual practices in the area of diversity and inclusion, and more diversity in senior leadership.

What I like about the company

the people who work here are fantastic and have helped me grow as a professional. I have had great opportunities here and I am grateful for that. I also think with the new leadership the University is striving to be better in the area of diversity and inclusion and have hope that we can move more in that direction.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of a culture of avoidance when it comes to difficult issues
