    I have been working at Indiana University of Pennsylvania part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere, clear expectations, willing to work around your schedule, the timing was the most important factor as there are few available positions you must apply quickly.

    Cons

    The only major con would be the pay, but what is to be expected, it was a student job which worked around a class schedule so even the little compensation that it was proved helpful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep hiring students!

    I have been working at Indiana University of Pennsylvania full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Caring people, great students, lots of opportunity to serve and research. The new president is well-liked and responsive. I have no interest in working anywhere else.

    Cons

    As anywhere, there are those people to avoid...and you can do so in this environment. Money-woes abound, but this too is normal in education today.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful to not let money woes affect students.

    I have been working at Indiana University of Pennsylvania as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Friendly upper management, very helpful HR and IT departments.

    Cons

    Academic politics like every other university in the world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decent compensation package for being a remote town that is 1.5 hrs away from a larger metropolitan area. Teaching load, committee assignments and advising duties in some departments is too extreme which contributes to difficult work/life balance. Budgets in academia are always a challenge.
