    I worked at Bentley University part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I really enjoyed my time at Bentley. The athletics department immediately makes you feel like you are a part of the team, and the support for each team was remarkable. I have not seen that kind of support at previous institutions.

    Cons

    For me, the commute was a bit of a challenge, but that was mostly because I was coming from a difficult location. Not accessible by T.

    I have been working at Bentley University

    Pros

    Paid more in benefits than salary if that's what your looking for.

    Cons

    'Bonus' less than yearly inflation, basically non-existent. New hires will typically start off with a very low annual salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start employees out with a fair salary. Give actual bonuses.

    I worked at Bentley University full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The benefits. 4 day summer work weeks, week between Xmas and NY off, great retirement, support services.

    The people. The people who work at Bentley are really engaged with the institution and its students. They are a close knit community of people who *care*

    Cons

    The former president was an amazing leader and visionary; it's hard for the new president to live up to the expectations set by the former leader, and to forge a new vision. As with any presidential transition, there is also transition at the topmost positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fully engage the faculty and staff of Bentley. Their dedication and commitment is exemplary and it's a lost resource if not fully utilized.

    I worked at Bentley University

    Pros

    Lots of great colleagues, opportunity for growth and advancement, excellent benefits, very nice campus. A very good place to work, and

    Cons

    Dreadful management at the senior administrative level. Significant momentum from 1998 to 2005 stalled when president's office vacant for two years. Never recovered that momentum due to ineffectual leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that when you let people go in a down economy -- especially dedicated veterans of a certain age -- that you create incredible hardship for families.
