    I worked at Barry University full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people, benefits and a beautiful campus. Feels like a real community/family environment.

    Cons

    Maybe increase pay for development professionals to at least meet the high cost of living in Miami and match the national average at a minimum.

    Pros

    Barry has a lot of university wide events and extras, you have the opportunity to take classes and can get a degree. The benefits are good for a university.

    Cons

    While the salary seems to be on par with other universities, leadership may be lacking depending on the department that you work in. It seems that there is a lot of in fighting between the departments vying for resources in a mostly tuition driven institution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Incentives for performance would be good.

    I worked at Barry University full-time

    Pros

    Very good benefits, time off policies and the staff were hard working, dedicated and great to work with. Generally the facilities were modern and in good condition.

    Cons

    Where do I start...Senior management are mostly incompetent. Hello, get a clue when great people are leaving right and left there definitely is a problem. But instead of addressing it, they would generally bad mouth the people that left. Let's not talk about how there were no pay raises for 3 years, and yet they would spend money like they were drunken sailors. Buying something new even though they already had the same thing but it was a year or two old.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people and get a clue that there are major problems. Give your people a raise.

    Pros

    Caring Community. Friendly and Professional Environment.

    Cons

    It is tuition driven for the most part. So, resources are limited. We have too much work and not enough time to get it accomplished which at times gives the impression that we are behind and not moving forward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a close look at Senior management positions. There are people in key roles that are not qualified and could hurt the University in the long run. We promote people because of long tenure and not because they are the most qualified to the job.

    Put more effort into retaining good, dedicated employees; cut the dead weight and complainers
