    I have been working at College of Saint Mary as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Small private all womens college devoted to empowering women from all walks of life. Small enough that students don't just become a number of $ sign. Ranks 10th in the nation and has for many years.

    Cons

    The cost of going to school here.

    I have been working at College of Saint Mary

    Pros

    College of Saint Mary has a wonderful mission statement and several programs that do great things for the community. There are also some wonderful staff and faculty members who still work there.

    Cons

    There are too many to list:
    -Low moral among employees
    -High health insurance costs
    -Management is oppressive
    -High turnover rate because of management
    -Too few employees to cover departments which means high stress
    -Hardly any integrity among senior level leaders
    -They do not value innovation
    -There is an environment of fear

    Because of these cons, College of Saint Mary has become an organization with an infamous reputation. With high turnover and employee dissatisfaction, departments cannot accomplish their goals of supporting College of Saint Mary's wonderful programs. This organization would accomplish so much more if the leadership would change. Until then, I'm afraid that employees will continue to come, encounter an awful work environment, and then leave a mess behind them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice: Bring in new leadership. Until then, the environment of College of Saint Mary will not change. Until then, the employees of College of Saint Mary will continue to deal with manipulation, harassment, fear and unchristian behavior. College of Saint Mary is supposed to be a Christian organization - it is clearly not following the teachings of Christ when it allows employees to suffer like they have.

    I have been working at College of Saint Mary full-time

    Pros

    The students overall are very good to work with although the troublemakers seem to get their way more often than not. The dining hall has good food most of the time for lunch. Generally most of the people who work here are pretty down to earth.

    Cons

    The employee turnover is terrible across all departments. People just disappear. There is a lot of fear across the campus at all times. You never know when you're going to get in trouble or for what. Good employees get fed up and leave or get fired for mysterious and often "personal" reasons. Bad employees stay because nothing ever happens to them for fear of a lawsuit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let people do their job without threatening their livelihood. Go do VP and President things, not be in people's business 24x7. Quit making everything personal because the President has changed her mind or decided it was time to fire someone for wearing the wrong color shoes.

    Pros

    Everyone was very nice during interview. Seemed like people cared about students. Most people are approachable.

    Cons

    CONSTANT Backstabbing among faculty, staff and administrators. ZERO trust between departments or in the senior leadership since one minute we're doing one thing and the next minute we're doing the complete opposite because the VP was bullied into place.

    Health benefits that leave you with little left after taxes. Compensation is within market but health benefits and retirement are well below "good."

    Those employees who stay suffer. Either the position goes unfilled for six months or we get more added on to us since we know everything. Most departments run shorthanded and people have to come in early, through lunch, stay late or come in during the weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your word. When you say something, mean it. We know that you talk about us too.

    Pros

    Close to Arby's, QT and Walmart
    Free Parking but it's not like there isn't any
    Plenty of Oxygen to breathe

    Cons

    Most negative place I have ever worked, by far. This comes from the top down, where the President rules with an iron fist. She is unpredictable, manipulative and dishonest. And it's so small, you can't escape her. No one wants to work there and it has at least a 50% employee turnover rate per year. People put in 50 - 60 hours a week and it's never enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't have health benefits that cost $800 a month and don't cover anything. It's ridiculous.

    I worked at College of Saint Mary full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The mission sounds good, but I quickly realized the school is more interested in giving students whatever they want than what is actually going to help develop and empower them.

    Cons

    I was not trusted to do my job well, and spent most of my time being bored. Every time I tried to improve my area and try new ideas, I was told no and called insubordinate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The President and most of the VPs need to go. Current and former employees are discouraging people from working there as it's a toxic work environment.
