Great people, great atmosphere

ESL Instructor (Current Employee)
Pittsburgh, PA

I have been working at Duquesne University part-time for more than 3 years

ProsSupportive, low-key bosses; friendly, helpful co-workers; pleasant, motivated students.

ConsAir quality in building--the windows are sealed, a better air purifying system would help. Might not be a good place to hang out all day for people with dust allergies.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone really, as they truly are good people.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

good place

Graduate Assistant (Current Employee)
Pittsburgh, PA

I have been working at Duquesne University part-time for more than a year

ProsNice work environment. The people there are generally very nice. It is one of the few places that a Master student can get a graduate assistantship and full tuition scholarship.

ConsI really don’t see any obvious cons. If I have to say something, it might be the work is mostly routine, not much fun and creative. But as a graduate assistant job, how much fun you expect?

Great place to work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Duquesne University

ProsGood place to work very friendly people. Benefits are great and the campus is as well. Time off is sweet.

ConsHonestly the only con is that it's located in the city if you don't like that sort of thing. Located near public transit to offset this.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep your tutition benefits and retirement as they are. Don't cut back on anything. Increase employee salaries accross the board.

network engineer

Network Engineer (Current Employee)
Pittsburgh, PA

I have been working at Duquesne University part-time for more than a year

Proslaid back, work was fun and not tiring. good people worked with me and always willing to teach me new things.

Conssome days were slow where i just sat in the office for my whole shift. And sometimes to keep me busy i had to do meaningless chores.

Advice to Senior Managementi have a set weekly schedule of what you need your lower workers to do on a daily basis.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great school, good & dedicated staff, non-existent career paths from within

Administrative Assistant (Current Employee)
Pitts, PA

I have been working at Duquesne University full-time for more than 5 years

ProsMission Statement and adherence to it. Tuition remission-excellent school

Consno credibile career path structure in place for current employees

Advice to Senior ManagementThere should be real career paths for current employees within. HR having to post a job for legal reasons when there is no real intent of hiring from within is a waste of everyone's time.
