    Pros

    Good working environment in most departments. Management and administration generally supportive. Very good benefits including low-cost health insurance and tuition remission for employee and immediate family.

    Cons

    Opportunities for advancement are limited, especially for those in middle and lower senior management ranks. Child tuition benefit (see "Pros" above) results people staying a long time often in the same job, which can contribute to low innovation and aforementioned limited advancement opportunity for others.

    Advice to Management

    Benefits are the highlight of working for Temple, followed by the modestly collegial work environment in most departments. If there were some way to maintain this while enhancing opportunities for employee advancement (not just development but actual advancement) Temple would be near perfect.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Temple University.
