    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Drew University (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Learn the basic foundation of behavioral health clinics Acquire skills with biofeedback machines and typical care to patients Ask questions to the head of the office

    Cons

    Unpaid internship with little to no guarantee of subsequent employment. Requires your own money for compensation of traveling

    Advice to Management

    Use less interns and instead hire a couple of full/part employees to manage the office.

    I have been working at Drew University full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Student interaction can be rewarding. The campus is beautiful and chock full of beautiful trees, plantings, buildings that make it a serene, comfortable setting. Facilities does a good job at continually beautifying the campus. Have made some nice friendships and acquaintances here. Perks: tuition for your children, benefits are ok.

    Cons

    No raises in 6 years. No room for growth. If you are in a position most likely you will be in that position until you retire or leave. Tuition is offered for staff, but time is limited as to when you can attend class and then you have to make up your time. Very little is being done to change morale which has been low for many years. We've downsized a few times now and staff has not been replaced, however a new Director or above crops up all the time. Top heavy.

    Advice to Management

    Six years is a long time to be patient to wait for a cost of living raise, if that, while all living expenses have gone up. Other functions could be put into place to raise morale. To show that we are appreciated and valued. Tired of feeling like low man on the totem pole.

    Pros

    Madison is a great town

    Don't treat their employees well. Never felt comfortable, never felt like I was wanted or needed. Very reactionary and not forward thinking.

    I worked at Drew University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are kind. Everyone cares about you and your growth. You make amazing connections and professional contacts. It is close to opportunities in New York City, and the hands on "learn by doing" approach is great.

    Cons

    There are no cons that I can think of. It was a very positive experience. This is a fantastic place.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    I worked at Drew University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most people were respectful and polite to each other,and there was a friendly atmosphere. The departments not directly dealing with academics were all respectful to each other and quick to respond to each other. The campus is also quite lovely.

    Cons

    Primarily? Low morale. There was also poor decisions in terms of asking departments to direct their resources towards programs which did not help the university's academics very much but looked nice to have, which gave a feeling of forced ineffectiveness.

    Advice to Management

    A direction needs to be decided and the vision given a specific list of actions which departments can do to meet the goal. These actions should not be vague. Finances also need to be managed better, both at the highest levels and in the individual departments.


  11. The worst morale I've ever experienced

    I have been working at Drew University full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Campus is beautiful and buildings are charming, employees work twice as hard as most places I've worked

    Cons

    Morale is abysmal, Management is terrible, Micromanagement a big problem. Some employees held accountable while others are not, No raises for years, Severely underpaid compared to similar jobs at other institutions, Top-Heavy institution doesn't care about lower paid employees

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees much better, work with them better when it comes to PTO, Be fair with holding everyone accountable equally, work to raise the morale in any way you can think.
