    I have been working at Dominican University of California

    Pros

    Great colleagues (for the most part)
    Great pleace to grow because of the small school environment = a lot of opportunity to be creative.

    Cons

    Administrators compensation is beyond excessive!
    Growth in student population doesn't mean growth in staff to support students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize what and where we are as an institution of higher education. We are not Berkeley, Stanford, or USF. Work with what we've got!

    Wonderful Community, Faculty Grossly Underpaid

    I have been working at Dominican University of California as a contractor for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Amazing community of students, faculty, and admin. Colleagues are like family. Beautiful campus conducive to study. One-on-one faculty and student rapport. Faculty have a real commitment to students. A peaceful place to work but . . .

    Cons

    . . . Faculty members are grossly underpaid, especially adjuncts, many of whom have hung in there for several years with "promises" of significant pay increases that have not come to pass. No benefits for adjuncts. Adjuncts make 2/3's or less of other Bay Area adjunct positions, not even counting the absence of benefits and recognition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get serious about wage increases for adjuncts - we've been more than patient for a very long time. It's becoming embarrassing, don't you think? Dominican is a private, high tuition institution that should make a better effort of practicing what it preaches, beginning with fair pay for its dedicated faculty committed to the students and to the Dominican values.
