    I have been working at Edinboro University full-time (more than 10 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Misogynistic 'Old Boy's Network'

    I worked at Edinboro University full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Edinboro University part-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Communication is the key, if not good job overall.

    Pros

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