Pros

The campus is lovely, the people are kind-- as long as you stay within your own social class, you will have a good experience. The benefits are some of the best in this area. If you have a supervisor you work well with you will enjoy encouragement, flexibility and support.

Cons

The culture of the University is out of date. If you are not from Scranton, and don't have a connection of some sort to the area you will have a difficult time feeling accepted in Scranton. If you are not part of the 'in-crowd' you will not be recognized for your contributions. Clerical and maintenance staff, in particular, have little in the way of career advancement opportunities.

Advice to Management

It's time to recognize the valuable assets already in the campus community. The staff does their work joyfully in spite of any problems they might be facing. It would be highly appropriate to provide someone to listen to the concerns of the community, but then have the authority to do something about those concerns.

  1. Scranton is great, but weak pay, great benefits, a lot of people who have been there too long but a strong community.

    Pros

    Plenty of room to move up and excellent benefits. A usually friendly environment and a good amount of support for their employees.

    Cons

    There are the occasional standard private university issues and challenges. There's also a low turn around rate (which is good!) but can lead to some complacency.

    Advice to Management

    I personally had a very good experience here- minimal issues and lots of support. Management works to weed out complacency but a little bit more effort could be made to benefit the rest of us.
