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

Pros

Great university with a distinguished faculty and staff. Most of the upper level administration is stellar in my experience with the university president, Tobey Oxholm, being top notch.

Cons

Make sure you do your research as some departments have internal issues.

    I worked at Arcadia University

    Pros

    Great environment even though it's very small, however that makes it easier to get to know everyone and it can be a very fun place if you get along well with others.

    Cons

    Can be very boring at times as much doesn't happen, also because it is so small it can get lonely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the students more, I have heard incredible things from them and they can really make this University much better.

    The university offers excellent benefits, and fellow co-workers are great, but don't work in Enrollment Management.

    I worked at Arcadia University

    Pros

    Best benefit package ever - lots of paid time off, including week between Christmas and New Years, very low share of cost for benefits, university contributes 8% of your annual salary to the retirement plan (two to choose from). You can take two classes each semester under the tuition remission program and it doesn't have to relate to your job. You will have the opportunity to work with some very dedicated people. It is a great environment to work in because you are helping young people get an education.

    Cons

    Stay away from Enrollment Management. The stress level is too high. You will have to work a lot of overtime and you won't be allowed to take classes under the tuition remission program. There is not a lot of recognition for the hard work you do in EM and the only way to get a promotion is to threaten to quit.
