    I have been working at Catholic University

    Pros

    plenty of time off. nice campus. great place if you want to sit at the same desk, doing the exact same thing for the next 15 yrs. Free tuition if you desire.

    Cons

    pay not equal to cost of living. very little minorities in upper management. experiencing lay offs at the moment. no growth potential.

    Pros

    Great organization to be a part of.. fosters an environment conducive to learning. Allows adjuncts to think outside of the box and have complete control of subject matter.

    Cons

    Compensation structure could be better, personal growth depends completely on you - whether or not you want to put in the extra work.

    I worked at Catholic University part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The office culture at CUA is professional; however, the people that work there are interested in the whole person, not just a numbered-employee. I felt as though I was a person, not an object.

    Cons

    The work-life balance in my job was often challenging.

    I have been working at Catholic University full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful campus/landscaping, managers and staff members are pleasant to work with. Generous vacation and holidays, low-stress job.

    Cons

    The IT department had gone through horrible restructuring and reorganization that resulted in massive layoffs and resignation. Generally staff are treated as a second class citizens and the pay for staff is really low. Due to some financial predicament in the past few years, salary for mid and low level staff has remained static. Some of the senior level staff are over paid.
