Notre Dame is just like your family...a lot of love there but also a little dysfunctional.

Former Employee - Director-level in Notre Dame, IN

I worked at Notre Dame full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great benefits, offer 50% tuition benefit to children of employees.
Overall solid leadership, a place you will be proud to work, an organization that tries to do the "right thing" at all times.
Impressive brand.
If you are an ND Football fan you will be in heaven. Nice discount on tickets and solid access to ticket through campus network.
Great place for someone at the end of their career to work (45+).

Cons

Old school. Probably about 25 years behind in terms of treatment and promotion of women.
Slow to act (but I believe this is a characteristic of institutions of higher learning.)
Does not deal with low performers. I have reflected on this a lot. I think it is because 1) they know they are the main employer in the area and they have compassion for people (ie. if they fire someone, that person would likely be looking at a relocation) and 2) the tuition benefit (again compassion for the employee (even if they suck) who has a child in school.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have the courage to part ways with poor performers. Period.
