Pros

Although pay isn't wonderful, there are many opportunities for professional development, especially with tuition remission. I enjoy working in the higher ed environment and with students. Beside tuition remission for employee and children, health benefits and matching retirement benefits are great.

Cons

Depending on what department you are in, most employees are overworked. There are a lot of students and not enough staff to service. We do the best we can with the resources and student demands. Management is conscience of this and supports as best as they can.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

All employees are motivated in different ways. Try to motivate employees through as many means as possible, we will appreciate the efforts.

    Pros

    Temple has a diverse and exciting campus environment enhanced by the tremendous growth in its resident population. Persons who've not been to campus in the last 10 years will be surprised by the growth of its physical plant and the improvements in its academic programs ... business, law, communications, education, psychology to name a few ... and student profiles. Safety and security are a priority on campus (it is a city school after all), and it is less menacing and safer than comparable campuses in Philly and New York (have you been to Penn or Columbia?). Temple takes its role of populist educator to the region very seriously and supplies the area with most of its doctors, lawyers educators and entrepreneurs. It is no longer a subway stop on the road of life, as one student once famously wrote in the Princeton review. Temple gets in your blood.

    Cons

    Sometimes too large for its own good. Tries too hard to be all things to all people, but that is a good kind of con.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on your most successful programs and schools and jettison those that have little appeal of profit ... even if they are sacred cows.
