I have been working at Bates College full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Bates was built on sound principals of education for all, all are equal. These principals guide the administration. It is an incredibly collaborative place to work. Your voice will be heard.

Cons

Because it is so collaborative, it sometimes takes a while to get a decision you need to move forward.

    I have been working at Bates College

    Pros

    There are none other than it is one of the few employers in the Lewiston Auburn area. This however leads into one of the biggest cons, because Bates can treat employees very poorly knowing employees have few other options.

    Cons

    Horrendous pay.
    No opportunity for advancement.
    An aging IT infrastructure which cannot handle the demands placed on it.
    Overbearing management.
    Low endowment means staffing levels are not adequate to meet the needs of the College, so existing employees get asked to do more, with no gain in wages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees what they are worth.
