Current Employee - Adjunct Professor  in  Cincinnati, OH
Current Employee - Adjunct Professor in Cincinnati, OH

I have been working at Xavier University part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great people and department. They place a lot of trust in their teachers and give them plenty of space to do their job. They don't micro-manage, and are very welcoming.

Cons

They are going through some rough financial times at the moment, so job security is questionable right now, even for an adjunct.

    Current Employee - Adjunct Professor in Cincinnati, OH

    I have been working at Xavier University part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Autonomy in teaching classes as an adjunct
    Nice coworkers
    Boss who will stick up for you
    Flexibility in scheduling office hours

    Cons

    I have not experienced any "bad" things about working here. Maybe it's because I'm an adjunct, and I don't see the day-to-day workings, but from what I have seen it's pretty functional, laid back and a good place to get work done

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Xavier seems to be having budget problems, but it's not entirely their fault. I think their budgeting and strategy for the next few years are good.

    Current Employee - Assistant  in  Cincinnati, OH
    Current Employee - Assistant in Cincinnati, OH

    I have been working at Xavier University full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Working with students and faculty, continued learning, teaching others, social environment

    Cons

    No football team, no career path, poor raises, behind on technology, top heavy on executive management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Suggestions: update curriculum to match student needs, implement more online classes, minimize employee burnout by offering job swap or crosstraining. Offer fexible compensation plans so employees that don't need tuition benefits get compensation comparable to those who use the tuition benefits.
