Unhappy overall environment and not worth the hassle

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

ProsConvenient location for Pittsburgh residents
The opportunity to work with young people
A steady schedule with days off for most major holidays

ConsInsufficient pay in comparison to other institutions
Lack of leadership
Lack of quality benefits
Inefficient use of university money and property
Few opportunities for advancement
Heavy use of nepotism
Lack of suitable working conditions
Too much emphasis on profit for a non-profit entity

Advice to Senior ManagementUnless the powers that be make some major changes, his school is on a collision course with financial and personnel dishwater. They should take a good long, hard look at their use of resources and how they can better manage them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
