    Pros

    Opportunity to take collage classes, even as a full time employee. Beautiful campus, well taken care of. Can easily find something interesting to participate in during non working hours.

    Cons

    Not much to say as far as cons are cocerned. Parking can occasionally be a challenge. Winters can be brutal in Edinboro, but they do a good job keeping roads and sidewalks clear.

    Advice to Management

    Need to have exercise gyms available, to use after an/or before work as a benefit perk for employees.

    Pros

    Friendly students and some colleagues; safe town and campus; relatively low costs in this area

    Cons

    Very little support and funding for research; varying performance expectations for colleagues

    Advice to Management

    Supervise chairpersons to a greater extent; financially plan so no future retrenchments will be necessary.

    Pros

    There are some good students who are essentially diamonds in the rough.

    Cons

    Long work hours. Declining pay. Academically-underprepared students.

    Advice to Management

    Seek out all faculty advice and act on it. Don't let the old guard faculty dictate campus policies any longer.

    Pros

    Lots of breaks, great people to work with, consistent hours, and tasks were not hard to finish. You felt good on Fridays because the weekend was well deserved since you did so much stuff during the week.

    Cons

    You have to get up early. Getting a lot of sleep is key to a successful day. Overall, no cons really to speak of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Promoting teamwork and kindness goes a long way with your coworkers. My team leader was awesome.


  6. It was an okay experience just so-so

    I worked at Edinboro University

    Pros

    I was a graduate assistant, working eighteen hours a week for 7.50 an hour and getting tuition for three classes paid for so that is good for a student!

    Cons

    I didn't feel connected to the people I worked with and did not enjoy the snowy walk to campus.

    Advice to Management

    Connect with your workers, both student workers and regular staff. Word of mouth and connection go a long way!

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Don'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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Listen 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    It 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 Management

    Communication is the key, if not good job overall.
