    Pros

    tuition benefit, 37.5 hour week, wonderful feel of support among the support staff, particularly secretaries and admin assistants, very, very friendly atmosphere beautiful campus

    Cons

    low hourly pay for support staff, but other benefits good hourly pay for secty/admin at or below povery level, but they recently enhances the tuition benefit office support staff generally feels undervalued and not respected enough by Administration, particularly the men in university administration training for those new in their positions, non-faculty, is non-existent there is a real heavy handed push to be all about cultural and religious diversity and inclusion, which is usually a good thing, but here it comes at the expense of Christian and Catholic beliefs. Odd for a Catholic institution

    Advice to Management

    stop being such a "boys club" it really is noticeable yes, the appointment of several women as academic deans etc is great, but thank goodness for them. without them, the boys club mentallity would be suffocating the support staff women

    A very nice campus environment.

    Justice begins at home.

    Pros

    Great upper adminstration to work for but at the college level, the old country club mentatlity exists. Great students population.

    Cons

    They do in breeding quite a bit. They do not allow outsiders to get into important positions. If you are not in the "Club", you are not promoted to anything

    Advice to Management

    Please make sure that Associate deans are qualify for the jobs that they are assigned to do. For example, managing graduate faculty when she herself has never taught graduate level classes.
