    Part-time employment, Full-time disengagement

    Academic Mentor (Former Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    ProsHad the opportunity to teach out-of-school youth how to organize and develop their academic goals through career development and establishing effective study habits.

    ConsAloofness is not conducive to a work environment within an academic institution.
    Miscommunication between entry-level and senior management led to poor delegation of high priority tasks and mediocre execution of deliverables to student body.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHold employees accountable for their actions. Micro-manage your team. Efface blurred lines of communication and delegate roles accordingly. Follow-up is crucial to efficient teamwork.

    Hard to move up if you are entry level and/or part-time

    Administrative Assistant (Current Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    Pros-Great colleagues, new buildings and renovations on all campuses
    -Benefits: great if you are full-time, decent if you are part-time. Tuition remission, dental/medical are fully paid for full-time employees. Tuition remission is 1 class for part-time and 2 classes after 2 years and employees pay into their medical/dental - coverage is great for what you pay.
    -Fun events year-around that foster positive employee morale
    -Diverse staff, faculty, and student population
    -Professional development is there if you take advantage of it (online trainings and every semester on campus)
    -Some members of administration are very encouraging and supportive in helping you utilize your best skills - I feel valued by my supervisor and department
    -Some of the instructors are incredible educators with passion for their jobs

    Cons-Almost no opportunities to move up if you are entry level or part-time - I work 2 jobs to sustain myself. I can't get another job on campus because it would put me in full-time status and they would have to pay benefits - even if you have the skills and excellent performance reviews, if you don't have their narrow definition of "experience" you are stuck in your position.
    -I haven't had a raise in years due to a quarrel between the union and administration
    -Some departments lack communication skills and are not helpful to students
    -Some members of the union have been around for a long time and have grown comfortable with doing very little
    -Some students come to my office often frustrated from being shuffled around by other staff members without clear solutions to their problems.
    -Some instructors are not so passionate about teaching.

    Advice to Senior Management-Make your best employees feel valuable and let their annual performance reviews be reflected in their pay or upward mobility within the company
    -Get a contract between the union and administration

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
