I have been working at University of Scranton

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The culture of the University is out of date.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 ManagementAdvice

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.

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

    I worked at University of Scranton part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working in the Study Abroad Office allows you to share your international experiences with students that want to have their own. The staff is a great group of people, with amazing stories of their travels. Michael is a wonderful guy, a great boss, and creates a comfortable atmosphere for work.

    Cons

    The only con working here was continually explaining how easy it is to study abroad, and professors telling students that they couldn't even though we have ways of sending students from every major to experience life abroad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, find ways to promote earlier in students' careers, especially nursing and exercise science.
