    Pros

    Good amount of paid time off for holidays, beautiful campus, nice to work with students

    Cons

    No raises, little opportunity for promotion, leadership continues to take things away from staff, little is done to address staff members who don't do there job or don't care, high ranking members (ie dean level and above) yell at me, poor outlook for the future, constant rumors of layoffs, little incentive to work hard

    Advice to Management

    Reward your employees who work hard, look at who you have in leadership positions and how they treat staff, focus on what the students want, do a better job of communicating with your staff

    Pros

    Nice people to work with, people care about the students here. Students like the environment, it's a beautiful campus. Not much work is required to keep your job - expectations are low. There's an underlying sense of community.

    Cons

    There is no desire to work hard to change. At times it feels like the term "Tradition" is used as an excuse for not moving forward. Changes that are being made are small, and may be too little too late. I'm truly not sure what the future holds for Immaculata, if it will even be here to celebrate it's 100th Anniversary in 2020.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees feel undervalued and underpaid in comparison to colleagues in other institutions. If you truly want to grow, you need to cut back the dead branches.

    Pros

    Family environment where everyone is welcoming. Commitment to maintaining a good work-life balance and further your personal education. Strong benefits plan with generous vacation allotment. Beautiful campus.

    Cons

    Little to no opportunity for advancement - organization is very flat. Limited sick time (vacation allotment helps with this). Significant overhaul is needed to help university reach its full potential.

    Pros

    Students, colleagues and academic staff work very hard on behalf of students

    Cons

    poor salaries, poor work environments, and no action taken by administration to correct poor treatment of staff.

    start recognizing talent within each department, increase pay, 5 years without an increase is too long
