    I have been working at Eastern University

    Pros

    A Great Principal Certification Program.

    I have been working at Eastern University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Eastern offers tuition remission so you can get your degree for free and the students are the reason for staying at eastern.

    The vacation, and other paid time off is also substantially more then other places

    Cons

    Zero Communication between departments

    Raises and employee appreciation is nonexistent.

    Christmas bonus is a ham or turkey...

    Required to do your job and beyond without additional gratitude or compensation.

    Annual performance review you are asked and encouraged to give 150% but...

    Raises... What are those its been years now

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show your employees appreciation through small things such as movie tickets and larger things like annual raises.

    I have been working at Eastern University full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -I have great colleagues and peers, we work well together
    -Office culture is generally friendly
    -time-off policies are generally bare-minimum, but they'll work with you if there is a serious issue that comes up
    -After working there for a year, you may qualify for Tuition Remission benefits allowing you to study for free at the University. Your family members can also qualify for Tuition Exchange at certain schools after a year as well.

    Cons

    -Very pitiful salaries (unless you're already at the top, in which case your salary is probably still below market level, but a whole lot more than others at the institution)
    -You'll be expected to do more than what your job description suggests and for no additional compensation
    -Slow at hiring replacement employees once others have left, leaving more work for those who are still there
    -There is little upward mobility. It's a rare thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Recognize the hard work being done by employees and reward them. They do not live on love for Eastern alone. Bills need to be paid. And employees should be making enough to be able to save and invest in their retirement--not just paycheck to paycheck, which is the story of a lot of employees. It gets difficult to keep a positive image of Eastern when one's hard work is not being rewarded with a decent salary.
