    I am very satisfied with Edinboro University.

    Resident Assistant (Current Employee) Edinboro, PA

    ProsThe community is great. Everyone is helpful and willing to go the extra step for you. Edinboro University changed my life.

    ConsThe job can be overwhelming at times. The department can be unorganized however they are improving.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees a little more (Residence Life). Some of us do know what we are talking about when we tell you what the students want.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Misogynistic 'Old Boy's Network'

    Assistant Professor (Former Employee)

    ProsIt you want a small town that is safe, it is great. But the town is the only good thing about working here.

    ConsLeadership (especially in the Humanities) is misogynistic at best.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't pay lip service to wanting more women doing high level research, then get rid of someone who puts out more quality research than anyone else in their department. You can't say "we value high quality research' when you get rid of award winning researchers, who have fine teaching records and have worked their butt off for their department and school.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Student Worker at Edinboro University

    Resident Assistant (Current Employee) Edinboro, PA

    ProsWorking as a resident assistant is a good leadership job. Position comes with room and a paycheck.

    ConsIt may be difficult to an extent to have friendships with other students because they see you as a "write-up-machine" instead as a peer. Staying up late during duty nights, waking up in the middle of the night to cater to student problems. Not a con per say, just the job duties.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication is the key, if not good job overall.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Adjunct

    Adjunct Instructor (Current Employee) Edinboro, PA

    ProsLight work schedule, state benefits, state pay, big campus, co-workers initially friendly, friendly students, and a plethora of resources to use.

    ConsWon't get hired without PhD, unionized labor, job insecurity, ideologically an echo chamber among the faculty and students, among others
