    Current Employee - IT Staff in Lewisburg, PA
    Current Employee - IT Staff in Lewisburg, PA

    I have been working at Bucknell University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Benefits are great. 23 vacation days, 12+ paid holidays, no sick day tracking. Medical and Dental coverage are good. 10% retirement contributions
    - Campus is beautiful
    - Great relationships within departments
    - Location (if you don't mind rural settings). Can get to NYC, Baltimore, D.C, Philly, etc within 3-4 hours.

    Cons

    - Some Faculty do not respect Staff. They feel that since they have a PhD at the end of their title that they know all and can treat people however they wish
    - Student's are snobby and dependent. They have no problem having mommy or daddy call when they have a problem.
    - Location isn't great if you like an urban setting

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some groups routinely lob problems over the fence without any repercussions.
