    A small university with big potential

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    San Rafael, CA

    ProsIt's a creative, intellectually stimulating environment. The campus is situated in a picturesque park-like setting. The staff and faculty are friendly and help support each other. Nice perks include use of the athletic facilities, free access to performing arts, some public lectures and reduced tuition, or the option to audit classes.

    ConsCertain departments are understaffed and underfunded. Getting policies and procedures approved can be arduous. Pay rates (other than faculty) for this non-profit University is under industry standards.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere could be better communication around career development. For staff retention, the cost of higher compensation should be compared to the cost/time for hiring new staff and determining the overall negative impact on business.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    It has been a learning experience!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    San Rafael, CA

    ProsGreat colleagues (for the most part)
    Great pleace to grow because of the small school environment = a lot of opportunity to be creative.

    ConsAdministrators compensation is beyond excessive!
    Growth in student population doesn't mean growth in staff to support students.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize what and where we are as an institution of higher education. We are not Berkeley, Stanford, or USF. Work with what we've got!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
