I think that any time management trusts its workers and gives them the freedom to do their job in the best way that they know how that is when the best solutions and work will emerge.

    I have been working at Mount Saint Mary College full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are so many wonderful people here, and that makes it nice to come to work. People across all different areas of the college come together to collaborate on various projects and are always willing to help each other. The work can be demanding at times, but that is more than offset by the positives. The campus is beautiful, and it's especially nice to experience in the fall or springtime.

    The school is a nice size: You get to know your co-workers and the students, and it's a very comfortable atmosphere.

    In the time that I have worked at the college, there have been many improvements to the campus, and to services of the college that help the students. It's nice to be somewhere that's growing and moving forward in a positive direction.

    There are interesting classes, talks, and events on campus and great food services and athletic facilities that you can take advantage of. The tuition benefits are terrific, and worth taking advantage of if you can. And, the college still has a nice holiday party for the whole faculty and staff, and other celebrations throughout the year that help us get to know each other outside of our regular roles.

    Some other positive aspects:
    • Hardworking, helpful co-workers
    • Friendly, supportive culture
    • Good work is acknowledged and appreciated
    • Health benefits are great
    • Ample sick and vacation time, and good holiday schedule
    • Strong retirement savings benefits, if you take advantage of it
    • Good food services right on campus
    • Access to athletic facilities
    • It's rewarding to work with the great students here and watch them succeed
    • Nice tuition benefits for you, your spouse, and your children
    • Beautiful views of the Hudson River

    Cons

    Some long hours can be required for evening and weekend events
    Pay increases could be better
