Excellent employer who treats people with respect.

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

ProsBates 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.

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

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… 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… Advice to Senior Management: Pay your employees what they are worth. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
