I have been working at Temple University part-time (less than a year)

Pros

Great Pay, Helpful feedback from students and professors, organized

Cons

None observed. Management is great but could make the delay in getting a worker in the system much faster. Current wait time is about 2 weeks and can prove to be a hassle.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fine as is! No problems to report

    I have been working at Temple University full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stable employment, actually diverse (real opportunities with fewer barriers based on race, gender, sexuality, national economic background, etc), mostly fantastic benefits for full-time employees (20 vacation days, 3 personal, plus a week winter break & 10 sick days - Blue Cross Personal Choice as an option for health insurance, 6 mostly-free credits per semester of courses (some charges apply), free tuition for employee's children, recognizes domestic partnerships, etc), plenty of opportunities for ambitious employees

    Cons

    Stable employment is undercut by instability in academic departments, diversity does not protect against cliques and pervasive internal politics, upper management is increasingly dominated by non-academics, upper level administrators administer things they don't understand, opportunities for ambitious or dedicated employees are created largely by the apathy or negligence of other employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to tone down the business aspect of Temple and focus more on academics and community stability - and build a better meritocracy where experts in the later part of their careers are managing what they know, versus dedicated administrators managing things they know little to nothing about.
