    Pros

    Medical, dental, vision, 401k benefits, tuition scholarships

    Friendly staff, 20 paid days off plus 2 weeks paid vacation

    Cons

    the pay is very very low especially for having a Master's degree living in San Diego (start out at $30k)
    Too many brown nosers in the company. During events some co-workers want to rub elbows with the higher ups and brown nose to move up and it actually works.

    Advice to Management

    Promote employes who actually want to help students graduate instead of just enrolling students for numbers. Remember this is a non profit school and we need to help the student.

    Pros

    Good location
    Nice, clean environment
    Making a difference

    Cons

    Insulting pay
    No raise after more than a year of service
    Lack of opportunities (most positions pay even lower than what I make, which is pennies)
    Too much emphasis on enrollments rather than retention (I thought I was working for a non-profit?)
    Generic and bland (you try to be creative and can't because of the University's "brand" voice, which is ancient and boring)
    No communication between employees (students get different information from different people in different departments)
    Cheap, cheap, cheap

    Advice to Management

    Please respect your employees. There is absolutely no reason I have to work two other jobs just to survive. I've gotten praise for my work, won a couple of employee awards and work my butt off to cater to my students, yet no raise in the year and few months I've been here? And from what I've heard, when it does happen, all I can expect is a 1% raise? Isn't this illegal? So many of us work hard yet complain about the pay. Why hasn't anyone started a strike? Reported to the BBB? This is not right and employees are being taken advantage of. Most employees last only a few months. There are some who have been here for 7 years and are still in the same position. That's just lazy. Who would want that? I have a Master's and don't need the 'free' degree (I use free loosely since they pay for three classes a year and it has to be at NU). For people like me, there's really no reason to be here. I expected more when I started at NU and was promised more. So far, they're just words and I am done. This is not worth it. NU is not what it pretends to be and this employee is moving on.
