Top University to Work for in Student Affairs

Assistant Director (Former Employee)
Fairfax, VA

ProsGreat colleagues, open to innovation and creativity in your work, students are bright and fun to work with, opportunity for professional development, opportunity to be promoted, upper administration is willing to be mentors, new president is very transparent and connected to social media, overall best college/university I have ever worked for to date

ConsIf you are not open to change and/or flexible this might not be the place for you, just appointed a new president Angel Cabrera so there could be changes in administration, strategic planning, direction of the university that may be challenging, there are multiple campuses so you may be asked to work on one or more depending on your role that could be a challenge, overall I did not find many cons but I am listing things that might be for those looking to work at Mason

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

    Undervalued and Underpaid

    Adjunct Professor (Current Employee)
    Fairfax, VA

    I have been working at George Mason University as a contractor for more than 3 years


    Pros: Other adjunct faculty colleagues are good people to work with.… Cons: Administration and Dept. Chairs are out of touch and only seem to care about numbers over the quality of education.

Measure you faculty's performance by what their… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
