Current Employee - Director in Miami Shores, FL

I have been working at Barry University full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

The Benefits package is great.
The People are welcoming.

Cons

- Pay is low, below industry standards.
- Upper management is not qualified, Very weak leadership, starting from the President -- This is the main reason why things do not get done properly.
- There is a lack of focus on the "Big Picture".
- Way to many chiefs.. not enough indians.
- A lot of talk, no action.
- Very few opportunities to grow professionally within the University, the majority of people that are in management positions are there because they have been with the company for a number of years... makes them loyal, but not qualified --- People have this notion that because they have been there long enough, that they deserve promotions or better positions.
- Departments do not use technology properly and are afraid that their jobs could be lost if they start using it.

    Pros

    Great Tech support. Ability to access everything by remote access. Including class roster, marks, etc

    Cons

    No support for adjunct staff, low wages, no benefits, no commitment to Adjunct staff from one term to the next. May teach one term and not the next. No consistency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a different policy around teaching assignments. Have internal job posting and process for current employees to get positions. Have a program which develops and support adjunct faculty to gain permanent positions.

    No opinion of CEO
