    Pros

    good coworkers, good facility location convenient for commuting to New Jersey. Inter campus shuttle allows for transportation to midtown. Opportunities for independent judgement and initiative,

    Cons

    fiscal belt tightening led to cut backs - to the bone, which had a negative effect on unit performance and access to resourcesl Little opprtunity for advancement within the technical band.

  7. Finally integrating departments, colleges and processes

    Pros

    Generous paid time off (20 days vac, 17 paid holidays, 12 sick days, early closing on Fridays); diversity is embraced; high respect for religious observance; contributing to the community through instruction, research and community out reach; on-site parking. Academia can be a very interesting place to work.

    Most of my co-workers, supervisors and staff are quite terrific.

    After four decades, they are finally implementing an enterprise-wide upgrade/redesign of the financial systems operations as well as integrating and centralizing human resources, purchasing and other business process across the university.

    Due to academic pricing, we can get just about any software tool we need to do our jobs, not to mention a choice between MAC and Windows computers.

    If you are Jewish, everything is kosher and shomer shabbos. You do not have to use up vacation days for religious holidays.

    Work hours can be flexible when you need it. Shuttle-bus and car service is available when traveling between the four campuses.

    Cons

    Salaries are much lower than at other institutions. This impacts hiring the best people. Occasionally a strong candidate comes along who puts the institution's mission ahead of salary, but that's a rarity.

    Opportunities for promotion are limited (though possible). Raises are, pretty much, out of the question.

    Computer desktop support and other technical support (e.g., Blackberry support, printer connectivity, email issues, etc.) is very slow and can take days. Hiring even one more support person would make an unbelievable difference, but there's no budget for it.

    Tax breaks for the rich means less Federal and State money for research which, in turn, limits the university from creating more jobs -- not to mention limiting the benefits of the research (which could not get funded) to the community. Alumni philanthropy is impacted, too (except among the wealthiest of alumni).

    Advice to Management

    Senior management could be more attuned to what is happening "on the ground." Some decisions could be made quicker.

    Take a few dollars out of your pockets and pay new hires at least 90% of what they are worth instead of 75% of what they are worth.

  8. Great opportunity for certain areas of higher education, awful for others

    Pros

    -Small school, collegial environment, great work/life balance, several days off (all Jewish holidays, of which there are several)

    Cons

    -Archaic infrastructure (payroll system, buildings, computer systems, etc.), widespread incompetence, homogeneous student population, not pretty environment/neighborhood

    Advice to Management

    Streamline and upgrade systems, require students to stay on campus for four years to get more out of the college experience and allow more time for other activities outside of the classroom, ensure lay-offs are strategic and done by talent and not just union rules

    Pros

    I was fairly pleased working at this organization. Overall, I think the compensation is good, the benefits excellent, and leadership is pretty good. Work/life balance is great. I was treated well by my boss and overall I would recommend this place.

    Cons

    I wish there were more communication between departments so that everyone is abreast. Sometimes there were too many meetings and not enough work/projects actually moving forward/getting done.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    Pros

    It's near my home, the schedule is somewhat flexible, the money isn't awful, the benefits are great and they say there is growth potential.

    Cons

    My job won't be anything that will stand out on my resume, I don't have the oopourtunity to be creative. My job is not very interesting. I wish that my job allowed me more independance and the ability to help out with interesting projects.

    Advice to Management

    I am too new to offer any real advice as I have only been here a few months. I feel that by January I will have a better hold on how I feel about the job. additionallyI am not lokng to stay here for my career as I am applying to law school.

    Pros

    Yeshiva has cometitive salaries at the middle mangement level, generous vacation abd sick leave, very supportive of family circumstances. Friday offices close at 2:30 for Sabbath and they give you all Jewish holidays, minor and major.

    Cons

    If you are not a Jewish male, room for advancement is non-existent. Management decisions that being made are slow and communication of change is awful. The Administrative office that do not work with students are rarely aware of student issues or concerns.

    Advice to Management

    Stop spending money on consultants and humanitarian trips to south America and reinvest in the school, staff, and students.
