I worked at Marywood University

Pros

100% tuition paid for employees & their kids

Cons

Most people just work for the free tuition and then quit once they finish school or their kids graduate. (Note that free tuition does not include the exhorbitant fees and book costs.) Pay is about 1/3 less than elsewhere. When I left, there was a lot of talk about staff reductions and people were being let go seemingly at random. Employees afraid to say anything -- even offer positive ideas -- because of the threat of job loss. Way to get ahead is to befriend someone in management so you are "protected." Management does not communicate with employees; major changes often happen suddenly and staff is expected to adapt with little or no notice, training, or guidance. General atmosphere of fear and repression keeps university from truly growing or providing quality education.

No need for advice, as no one would listen.

    Pros

    Marywood is a great place to work, but the salary is low in comparision to other comparable universities. Good people, Scranton is great!

    Cons

    The biggest con is the salary. the poeple are great, the staff is accomadating, but you are given a great deal of responsbility and not compensated for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Marywood University

    Pros

    The best, and only, reason to seek employment is for the benefits. Pay for all support staff positions extremely low compared to similar positions at surrounding colleges and universities

    Cons

    Throughout campus depts have many family members work side by side or they supervisor one another. Makes it an extremely uncomfortable environment to be in if you don't have any blood relations on campus. Nepotism reigns supreme

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Current hiring practices are very shady, if anyone was to bring suit about equal opportunity for employment or the rampant nepotism how will you respond?
