    Pros

    Great pay and benefits
    Excellent experience working with students and other departments
    HR is super responsive and they care about their employees

    Cons

    A lot of turn over created chaos in terms of filling positions. At times they would.hire people just to get the job filled even if they weren't the best candidate for the job.
    Getting island crazy is a real thing

    Advice to Management

    Advicate for more direct flights on/off the island
    Bring back free transport to the airport
    Have more selective hiring practices rather than anxiously filling positions with less than ideal candidates

    Pros

    Great country to work in, laid back life style and no traffic.

    Cons

    The administration showing the good will, but lacks the vision for the future in my field due to what I call selective ignorance.

    Advice to Management

    Open up your mind to different options and help the departments to achieve the goals.

    Pros

    When I was there, Ross U was wealthy enough to hire an army of temps and contractors, as well as supply water coolers, a Keurig brewer, and the occasional catered lunch. Even if you're only a temp, Ross will treat you as well as their regular employees and help you blend in. Many of the temps or contractors are eventually offered full-time positions if they stay long enough. The culture is very laid-back.

    Cons

    With all the growth and increased staffing, the office felt crowded at times. The cubicles and conference rooms always felt a bit cramped to me. The temps and contractors are there because the regular staff is often overworked. Expect to deal with some screeching hens and the smell of everyone's lunches around noon. The location is also a bit inconvenient: arriving and leaving via entrance/exit ramps on Rt 1 is a bit of a hassle, especially during construction or rough weather. Also, since Ross is part of DeVry, expect all the pros and cons that come with being part of a publicly-traded for-profit university.
